This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

AiTOTHZB and third Section of the EihiHtion is introdnoed by this Class, which includea the Manuractnre of 
Cotton. ThisSection cuntemplatcs those results uf human industry whidi natumlly succeed to the Sections of 
Raw Hateri&ls »nd Machiaery. The substance to bo operated upon having been considered, together with llie 
mccluuiiaJ aaBistonoe neoenary to orry forward the proccasea through which it has to pass in its progress 
fnim the raw material to the manufactured article, it now becomes an interesting study to turn attention to 
the product of the industry occupied in the preceding departmcnta. While objects in the first Section may be 
nr/arded as in a passive or invparatory Btat«, objects in the second must be considered in an active, and in the 
third in a complete condition, awaiting only their application to the purposes of life. This condition generally 
rrodeis the articles contuned within tiiie Section less attractive than in the preceding and succeeding Sections. 
Rij^tly viewed, however, objects in this Section must receive a degree of attentive consideration not inferior to 
(hat bestowed on the furmrr. The manufactured article may and should be rej^arded as the test of the pei^ 
fection, Gnrt, of the raw material conatituting its foundation, and, secondly, of the mechanical arrangements 
co-oneralivc in its pruduction. If the raw material has been wanting in any of the [noperties for which it ia 
emiiloyod in the preparation, or if the manufacturing machinery has been defective m operation, the manu- 
bctored article offers, in many cases, certain evidence of these facts. And, conversely, the purity and perfect 
fitnen of the material, with a state of efficiency in the manufacturing machinery, combine to produce a certain 
superiority in the manufacture which may bo generally -ascerttuned upon its mreful examination.

machinery, &c., for the manufacture of this material, and about the same amount in wages to the |)er8on8 
directly employed in the factories, of whom the total number is taken at upwards of half a million, exclusive 
of 80,000 or 90,000 engineers and machinists immediately connected with the manufacture. The total annual 
value of the manufactured material has been approximatively represented at about thirty-six millions sterling. 
The effect on the populaticm of the manufacturing districts has not been less surprising. 

Although, therefore, little of external interest appears to belong to a bundle of cotton-yam or a piece of 
calico, the study of its manufacture, exclusive of the exquisite mechanism by which it is operated upon, and 
the statistical facts which link themselves with its history, can never be unptofitable. The moral considerations 
connected with cotton factories form a subject of even higher interest and importance. — R. £.

surface, having a plush or looped surface on both sides, 
and in the patent mode by which this is accomplished on 
one or both sides. The great sofkness of tne cotton 
surface adepts it peculiarly for young children. The 
advantages of cotton towelling have been long appre- 
ciated in the Eastern baths. The linen nap or plush 
affords equal absorbency, and produces a sharper feeling 
to the skin, whilst the retaining of the cottnn groimd 
gives a pliancy of material which has long been a deside- 
ratum in towelling with a sharp rough surface. Produced 
by '' Holt's Bfttent." The texture is applicable to shawls, 
counterpanes, and other articles.

cloth WM brooght to London in 1590, from Benin; and 
it was aaoortained about a century previouB, to have been 
the diief article of drefls among the Mexicans. Its manu- 
CKtoze was originally brought to Europe by the Moors of 
Spain; but it was not till after the establishment of their 
oofnmaroe with India, that the Dutoh began to fabricate 
cotton cloths at home. The Protestants, driyen by perse- 
eotion from the Netherlands, brought this manufacture 
to Kngfand in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. 

Oar ordinary cotton fiibrics haye their counterpart in 
tbe original manufactures of India; and the native mus- 
lins of Dacca in Bengal still rival the productions of the 
azquinte machinery of England. The former have ob- 
tained their superiority from the skill acquired by manual 
dazlarity transmitted through a long lapse of ages; the 
latter, firom that of little more than half a century of well- 
axardaed merhaniral ingenuity. The various kinds of 
cotton fidirics brought from India, were originally distin- 
gnialfted by the names of the places where they were made ; 
as, jaconets, mullmuls, betelles, tarlatans, tanjeebs, 
bvkea, terridams, doreas, &c. Imitations of these by 
oar manufactursrs retain their names ; and additions 
and changes are made according to the improvemente in- 

Tbe two great emporiums of the cotton manufacture 
are M an rhe ater and Glasgow; the former having Bolton 
for its aasiBtant, in the production of muslins and the 
finer sort of goods; and the latter. Paisley. Both these 
dties have risen, in consequence of the wealth produced 
by tbair m a nuf a c tures, from the position of third-rate

Printed calicoes, or prints, at first the imitations of thoaa 
of India, are now produced in patterns of an indefinite 
variety every year. Calicoes are frequently impregnated 
with a made paste of spoiled flour called " the dressing," 
which renders it difficult to ascertain their quality. This 
dressing is given merely to improve their appearance. 

The peculiar style of printed calico, called chintz, ori- 
ginally from India, and in which the figures are at least 
of five different colours, impressed upon a white or 
coloured ground, are now made by our own manufac- 
turers with great success, aa to beMity of design and 
richness of colour. The invention and the drawing of 
patterns for printing alone gives employment to artists 
of a peculiar class; and the variety produced is immense, 
in order to satisfy the perpetual demand for change pro- 
duced by fashion. 

It is to the production of fine muslins, that the chief 
efforte of our cotton manufacturers have been directed, 
with a view to excel the wonderfully delicate and light 
fabrics of India. It is stated that the turbans of some 
of the rich Mohammedans at Delhi were made of muslin 
so fine that thirty ells did not weigh four ounces; and 
that some of their broad webs might be drawn through a 
ring of moderate size, the tissue being so exquisite that 
it seemed more like the work of insects than of men, re- 
sembling in the language of Elastem hyperbole, "the 
woven wind.'* The threads of a specimen of this manu- 
facture in the Museum of the East India Company, when 
examined with the microscope, were found though spun 
only by the distaff and spindle, to sxirpass our machine- 
made muslin in fineness, but to be inferior in regularity. 
Twenty yards of the yam of which this muslin was made 
weighed only a grain; and a pound of it would have 


Class 11.— COITON. 
Areas I. J. 1 to 8. 

reached the length of 115 miles. In England yam has 
been spun so fine, that a pound would extend to 167 
miles in length; but this could not be woven by our 
machinery. The price of the Dacca muslin has been, when 
brought to this country, from 10 to IQ guineas per yard. 
By the employment of machinery, and the division of 
labour, we are enabled to produce muslin much cheaper 
than the Hindoos, and even of finer texture; but their 
muslin is richer, softer, and more durable, and still 
maintains its reputation. The same may be.said of their 
calicoes, ginghams, and chintsses, which form the staple 
conmiodity of the Circars. Though nearly driven out of 
the European markets by cheap and successful imitations, 
they are still preferred in the East, where the merchants 
consider that they are able to distinguish by the touch, 
and even by the smell, the genuine productions of the 
Indian loom. 

Varieties of muslin are jaconet, a light kind of muslin, 
open and soft, but stouter than the mull : the name is 
supposed to be a corruption of Jaghemout, the place 
where they were made; it is used for dresses, neckcloths, 
'ftc« Nainsook is a thicker sort of jaconet, plain and 
striped. Mull muslin is a very thin and soft kind, used 
for dresses, trimmings, &c. Seerhand is between nain- 
sook and mull, and particularly adapted for dresses, 
retaining its clearness after washing. Buke muslin is a 
plain clear kind, woven for working in the tambour. 
Foundation muslin is open-worked, used for stiffening 
dresses and bonnets. Leno is thinner and clearer than 
buke muslin; a sort of cotton gauze, used for window 
blinds. Cambric Tnimlin ig an imitation of cambric, a 
linen fabric; it is sometimes glazed, white and coloured 
for linings, and twilled, figured, striped, or corded. Cord 
and fancy checks, are cambric muslins with stripes and 
cords placed chequer-wise, by thick threads being intro- 
duced into the warp or weft. Figured muslins are 
wrought in the loom to imitate the tamboured muslins, 
which are embroidered by hand on the tambour. Glasgow 
is the chief seat of the tamboured muslins. Of cotton 
cambric there are two kinds; that used for dresses, white 
or printed, made chiefly in Lancashire ; and that used for 
the same purposes as French cambric, made chiefly in 

Cotton damasks, huckabacksy and diapers, are made in 
imitation of articles of the same name in linen; they are 
cheaper, but less durable in fabric and in whiteness. 
Cotton ticks are plain and twilled, in imitation of linen 
ticks; and there is a kind called union tick, composed of 
linen and cotton. Gingham is a thin chequered cotton. 
Coimterpanes, a oomipiion of counterpoint, have small 

protuberances arranged according to various patterns. 
ICarseilles quilts are more elegant than the former; it is 
a double cloth, with a third of softer material between, 
kept in its place by the quilting done in the loom. Cotton 
quilting is made for waistcoat-pieces, resembling diaper. 
Jean is a twilled cotton, both striped and white. Satin 
jeans are woven like satin, with a smooth glossy surface, 
and are used for stays, shoes, &c. Dimity, an article well 
known, is made striped or plain; now much used for 
curtains. Fustian is a coarse twilled cotton, compre- 
hending several varieties, as corduroy, jean, velveret, 
velveteen, thickset, thickset cord, and other stout cloths 
for men's wearing apparel. Common plain fustian is 
called pillow; when of a strong twilled texture, and 
cropped before dyeing, it Ib called moleskin; and when 
shorn after dyeing, it is called beaverteen. 

Cotton goods, particularly the finer fiU^rics, as muslins 
and bobbin-net laoe, are subjected to a process by which 
the downy fibres of the web as it comes from the loom 
are removed, and the fabric is presented in a more 
finished state of manufacture. This process formerly 
consisted in passing the web in its whole width rapidly 
over and near to the upper surface of a semi-cylindrical 
piece of red-hot iron placed horizontally, by which the 
fibres projecting from the surface were consumed in a 
moment, while the fabric itself passed unhurt over the 
burning mass. Had the machinery by which this was 
effected been suddenly stopped before Uie web was raised 
from its perilous position, the whole would have been 
enveloped in flames. 

This method of singeing muslin, which was practised 
at Glasgow and in Lancashire, has been in some factories 
superseded by Hall's patent process, which consists in 
the application of gas to effect the same purpose as the 
red-hot iron. The latter is replaced by a tube similarly 
placed, and perforated in its upper side with niunerous 
small holes as jets through which the gas passes. When 
the gas is ignited, the muslin is passed rapidly over the 
flame in a manner similar to that already mentioned. 
Improvements were introduced into this process by the 
patentee, by which a draught of air is created over the 
series of jets when acting as burners; and the web being 
then rapidly passed over these burners, the air forces 
the flame of the gas through the interstices of the fabric, 
and all the loose and projecting fibres of the thread com- 
posing the web are instantaneously consumed as before, 
without in the least injuring its substance or texture. 
The application of this process creates the distinction 
between gassed and ungassed goods. — R. W.]

The gmt manufacturing localities for goods contained in these Classes are Chippenham, Frome, and Brad- 
ford, in Willi ; Wootton-nnder Edge, Stroud, Leeds, Huddersficld, and Halifai ; Galashiels, Hawick, and 
Selkirk, are localities in which particular descriptions of wool and narrow clothe are produced. Blankets are 
manufacture chiefly at Witney, Dewsbury, and Oakhamplon. Flarmel is produced in large quantities in the 
Principality, also at Hocbdale and Stroud. Tartans form a charBcCeriatic manufacture of several northern 
towitt. But the town of liradford presents the most conspicuous example of a locality deriving a lar^ share 
of proqierily from the production of a peculiar description of goods — the worsted stuff goods. In 1801, thia 
town had a popalaticn of about 6,400, which, in thirty years, had multiplied to upwards of 23,000, and ba» 
aiDoe increased even more rapidly. This ia duo, in a great measure, to the extraordinary success which haa 
altmded the manufacture of miied fabrics, and especially of worsted stuff goods. The spinning of worsted yam 
alone employs many extensive factories, which supply others equally extensive with material for weaving the 
goods by power-looms. A very large population, not under 9,000 or 10,000, is now employed in these fac- 
Ifwi**, or in eonneclinn with them. Ijitterly the alpaca manufacture baa risen into great imj«rt«n«e, and with 
the mannfacture of fabrics made of wool and cotton, and of wool and silk, constitutes the staple industry of this 

Tlte woollen manufacture frenerally haa for a long period been regarded as one of the most important 
laaDcbcs of our national industry, and though less extensive than that of cotton, still holds a highly influential 
pMiiion, and furnishes tbc means of support to many thousands of our countrymen. It has been computed 
that not fewer than 312,500 people are cmployeil on the whole in this oianufacture, which has been calculated 
to amount to the anniml value of about 25,0O0,00W. The introduction of new materials cither for use atone, 
or JD cornbinalion, has at tinies given an extraordinary impuUe to the manufacture, and the character of the 
(piods pmdtieed has undergone several important modifications. The manufacture largely carried on at 
|)ewibary, in Yorkshire, of a coarse cloth from woollen rags, is very interesting. The rags are torn up by 
machinery, and their fibrous material is entirely separated ; it is then spun in low numbers, an<l made into a 
o«rse description of cloth tiiicd for beize, lablo-cloths, A-c. The reproduction of a woven fabric, from material 
natil recently regarded as entirely waste and uaclcai for such purposes, is a striking illustration of the adaptive 
inganaity of the preaent day.— R. E,

[The alpaca is an animal of the Llama tribe, inhabit- 
ing the mountain-region of Peru. The wool or hair is of 
various shades of black, white, grey, brown, &c., and is 
remarkable for brightness and lustre, great length of 
staple, and extreme softness. This wool was brought 
into general use in this country about 16 yeai^ ago by 
the present exhibitor. Since that time the various ob- 
stacles in the way of its successful working have been 
quite overcome, and the alpaca manufacture now ranks 
as one of the most important branches of the Bradford 
worsted stuff trade. The articles produced from alpaca 
in combination with silk are especially noticeable for their 
softness and brilliancy. The bulk of the goods, however, 
are made with cotton warp, and when dyed and finished 
approach in lustre very nearly to silk. The following is 
the average yearly importation of alpaca wool into England 
since its first introduction, viz. : from 1836 to 1840, 7,000 
bales per annum; from 1841 to 1845, 13,000 bales per 
annum; from 1846 to 1850, 20,000 bales per annum. It 
is generally believed that this last amount is the utmost 
extent of production in Peru. 

The animal has not hitherto been very extensively 
cultivated in this country. H. R. H. Prince Albert has 
a small quantity at Windsor Park, and the Earl of Derby 
has a flock of about 60 at Knowsley. A specimen of Lord 
Derb/s growth is now exhibited by Mr. Salt. Consider- 
able difficulties have arisen in the rearing of these animi^lff 
in England; but when more correct information is obtained 
as to their habits in their native district, these will most 
probably be overcome. Attempts are just now being 
made to introduce the alpaca into our Australian colonies, 
where the climate, from its great dryness, is believed to 
be congenial for its successful naturalization. 

Mohair or goat's wool is produced exclusively in Asia 
Minor. In its raw state it is superior in lustre to alpaca, 
and is wrought into many beautiful fabrics. The importa- 
tion of this article has increased from 5,621 bales in 
1841, to 12,884 bales in 1850. Mohair yam is largely 
exported to the Continent, where it has superseded the 
yam formerly spun in Turkey, and is there manufactured 
into Utrecht velvet for hangings, furniture, lining of 
carriages, &c., a branch of trade which is now gaining 
groimd extensively in this coimtry. 

Russian Donsky fleece wool is of a very coarse descrip- 
tion, and was first combed and brought into use in the 
worsted trade about 20 years ago by the present exhibitor.

[The following details will convey some idea of the 
progress and extent of the worsted stuff trade. Messrs. 
J. Rand & Sons' factory was built in 1803, and was the 
third erected in Bradford. The population t>f the town 
and neighbourhood was then about 6,500; it is now 
estimated at 00,000. There are at present in Yorkshirs 
(principally in the parishes of Bradford, Halifax, Kei^iley, 
and Bingley), 418 worsted factories, with 746,281 spindles, 
30,856 power-looms, and employing 70,905 workpeople. 
Taking the worsted and woollen manufactures together, 
the increase during the last 16 years has been, in the 
number of factories 51 per cent. ; in the number of hands 
employed, 116 per cent. — O. T.]

Yams, spun from the above flax, alone, and mixed with

[To the present time it has been considered impossible 
to apply existing cotton machinery to the manufacture of 
flax. Mr. P. Claussen considers that this difficulty now 
no longer exists, and that by processes adopted by him, it 
is possible to prepare a kind of "cotton" from flax, 
suitable for a large niunber of manufacturing purposes, 
and capable of being spun in tolerably high numbers. 
A peculiar part of Mr. Claussen*s patent is the bleaching 
of flax and its disintegration, which is said to be efiected

Machine for inventing and displaying patterns in stripes, 
cheques, and tartans, by means of uiding mirrors and 
coloured glass, suitable for manufacturOTS of textile 
fabrics, whether in cotton, woollen, silk, or linen, or a 
combination of two or more of these materials. 

The advantages of this machine are — the Badlity with 
which any pattern, or idea of a pattern, may be set up 
and displayed — the variety of designs it can produee— 
and the ease and simplicity of accomplishing them. It is 
not at all necessary to paint the pattern on paper, after 
viewing it through the mirrors, as the scales attached 
show at once the required number of threads of each 
colour, and how many repeats are necessary for the 
breadth of the web, and it displays at once, not only the 
repeat, but the whole breadth, and a considerable portion 
of the length of the cloth at one view. 

By this invention, the precise effect of a pattern may be 
produced, in the course of a few xninutetB, without any 
expense, multiplied to any extent, and it may be enlai^ged 
or diminished at pleasure. The chief novelty, however, 
of this machine, which is exhibited for its simpUoity and 
the ease of its adaptation, is, that the precise effect of the 
cloth in a finished state is accurately represented, the 
crisp transparent effect of a silk fabric being truly giveOy 
as well as the soft and more opaque effect of a woollen 

This invention is new in principle, being a novel i^mli- 
cation of coloured glass to useful and essentially practical

H.R.H. Prince Albert, in Windsor P&rk. The warp is <^ 

Two shawls and a specimen of coarse cloth manufiM^- 
tured by J. Haley and Son, Bramley, near Leeds. The 
whole of the material is of the Casnmere wool as above 

The Cashmere goat's wool, of which these artioles are 
manufactiu^ consists of two distinct materials called 
wool and kemp. The wool is beautifully rich and soft to 
the touch, and is probably superior in this ren>ect to the 
finest continental lamb's wool, and eqiael to the richness 
of the Thibet wool. It is also divisible into qualities. 
The kemp presents the appearance of a course rough hair, 
sudi as is avoided by the manufacturer in all purchases 
of wools, deteriorating as it does the appearance of even 
common fabrics by its inferiority and harshness. 

1^ two wools, as shorn from the goat, are closely in- 
termingled, and present the appearance of coarse hairy 
wool of a very low character ; but a minute inspection 
shows that part of it is of a very fine quality. In order 
to separate this fine quality from the coarse, it is ne- 
cessary to do so fibre by fibre; and this has to bo effected 
entirely by hand, no machinery having as yet been applied 
to this purpose. The process is both difficult and tedious ; 
one person not being able to separate more than half an 
ounce in twelve hours. 

After the separation of the qualities, it is desirable 
further to divide it, in order to make a warp yam for 
fabrics like the shawls; but this was impossible in the 
present instance, owing to the small quantity producod, 
otherwise the fabric would have been much finer. In the 
dresses this result has been achieved, because the warp i& 
of silk, and the quantity required for the weft was there- 
fore not so great in proportion. 

The 8i>ecimen of coarse cloth is manufactured entirely 
of the coarse hairs or kemp after it is assorted from the 
finer material of the wool. In a general way this is con- 
sidered worthless.

Thib ClaM ippeftM u the representative of the silk and velvet manufactures of the United Kingdom ; tho 
raw malerisl of tho manufacture being far more costly than in the two prectidiDg instances of cotton and 
wonllen. The articles included by this Clasa partako, on the whole, more of the character of products of 
luxury. The beautiful capabilities of the fibre for textile purjMisca, sud its delicate applicability to the pur- 
pi»e» of the dj-er, render silk an interesting and attractive manufacture. The same qualities also combine to 
uffer it as an admirable material for the display of ta3t« and oniamcnt. llic number of Exhibitors rather 
eioeeds tliat of those in cotton, hut falls far below the number exhibiting in woollen and worsted. Manu- 
faclorera are the priDcijial Exhibitors ; but works executed by private hand, and articles exhibited severally 
by iiTOiirietora, have also a place in this Class. 

The jubdivisions of the Class are as follow ; — A. Includes Silk Yams, such as fipun. Thrown, and Sewing 
Silks ; B. Plain Silks of every kind ; C. Fancy Bilks, as Shot, Figured, Embroidered, &c. ; I), Velvets, Flain 
mod Figured ; E. Gauzes and Crapes ; F. Plain Ribbons ; and Q. Fancy Itihinns. 

The articles in the Class are to be found in the Building in the South and Transept Galleries, where 
tticy are cont«ned in plass cases. In this position they offer a favourable opjertimity for contrast with thoM 
uf the principal foreign silk-producing localities, the coutributions of which are msplayod in the Central 
South Uallerj-, on the opposite side of the Transept. 

The principal localities from which articles have hjen received have been tho metropolis (Rpital fields), 
Macclesfield, Leek, Halifax, Derby, Manchester, Leeds, and Coventry. Hut many articles are exhibited which 
have ti'it Nfn derived directly from llie locality occupied by the Rxbibilor, but from others not enumerated.

[To the Chinese we owe the knowledge of the manu- 
facture of Bilk J but its origin, even with them, ia hid in 
remote antiquity. Silk was brought overland from China 
to Rome, within a century after Alexander had opened 
the passage to India. In the reign of Aurelian, a.d. 270, 
its price was so high, that a pound of silk was sold for a 
pound of gold, nearly equal to 50/. About a century 
later its purchase was within the reach of all classes at 
Rome; and in the reign of Justinian, a.d. 551, by the 
agency of two Nestorian monks, who brought the eggs of 
the silkworm from China, the manufacture of silk vras 
introduced into Europe. Venice and Lyons afterwards 
took the lead in its European manu&cture ; and the re- 
vocation of the edict of Nantes brought the first silk 
weavers to Spitalfields in 1685. 

Silk is still imported from China, and it excels that of 
every other country, in brilliancy and colour. Consider- 
able quantities are also imported from France and Italy; 
the silk of the latter country being esteemed the superior. 
The silk manufacturers of England have successfully 
striven under many disadvantages (one of which has been 
the difficulty of raising the raw material at home), to 
cope with the continental manufacturers in the produc- 
tion of elegant fabrics, and they now produce some 
which rival, if they do not surpass, those of foreigners. 
Manchester, as an example, exhibits ** gros de Naples " 
as good and as cheap as that of Lyons; and the establish- 
ment of our Schools of Design bids fair to secure our 
superiority in the taste and beauty of our patterns. 

Of the various kinds of sUk fabrics presented to our 
notice, we can only describe a few. Damask, which was 
formerly used for dresses, is now chiefly employed in 
furniture; it is a twilled fabric made in the same manner 
as linen damask, with flowers, birds, and other orna- 
ments worked into its texture. Brocade is a fabric into 
which, originally, threads of gold and silver or a mixture 
of these were introduced to increase the richness and 
splendour of its appearance. This name, however, is 
applied to rich silk stuffis, as satins, tafietos, lutestrings, 
&c., adorned with flowers and figures. Satin is a glossy 
silk twill to which the soft and glistering appearance is 
given by rendering a great number of the threads of the 
warp visible in the process of weaving: instead of raising 

each half of the warp alternately, only a fifth or an 
eighth part is raised, so that the face which is thtui worm 
downwards, presents an even, close, and smooth sorfiMSo. 
To improve its appearance, when taken out of the loom, 
it is rolled on heated cylinders which renders llie fiuse 
still more smooth, and imparts to it a more brilliuit 
lustre. The smooth and plain fiibrios, as lutestring; gros 
de Naples, Persian, ducape, levantine, sarBSoeA^ Ac., 
differ from each other chiefly in their thk^neas and 
quality. Some of these, however, are figured. Taffirty 
is a fabric of a wavy lustre imparted by pressure and 
heat, with the application of an acidulous liquor which 
produces the effect called watering. Tabby and tabbinota 
are varieties of the latter. Armozeen is a thick plain silk, 
generally black; used for clerical and funeral purposes. 

Velvet is distinguished by the soft pile on its suifiusey 
which is produced by the insertion of short pieces 
of silk thread doubled \mder the weft, and so crowded 
together as entirely to conceal the interladngs of tlia 
warp and weft. The loops of the thread are after- 
wards cut, and then they exhibit the a{^>earanoe of a 
brush; the pile is produced by the separation of Uie 
threads, and the application of machinery to cut them 
smooth and even. The warp and pile of good velvet are 
both composed of organzine silk, which is composed of 
several threads of raw silk twisted or throwi together in 
the form of a rope; and its richness depends upon the 
relative numbers of its pile threads. Velvets are said to 
be of different degrees of richness, via., of two, four, or 
six threads, according to the number of pile thz^tda 
inserted between each of the dents of the reed. The 
velvets of Spitalfields may be safely compared with 
foreign velvets in fineness and strength, as well as in 
general appearance. 

Ribbons, or, more properly, ribands, are chiefly made 
at Coventry, and have of late so much improved in 
manufacture, that our home producers can now vie wHh 
the foreign. They partake of the same varieties in 
general, as the lai^er silk fiabrics; they are frequently 
ornamented with a pearl edge, which is formed by 
making some of the threads of the weft project beyond 
the rest. Clouding is an appearance given to ribbons in 
the dyeing.— R. W.]

The localiliea supplying tbeee and similar articles are cbicfly Belfast, Dunfermline, Bamslcy, 
ter. Some intereating collections of the materials used, and of its first stages of preparation for 
manabctiire, are likewise shown. The most ordinary articles such as sacks, threads, fisbiu^-ncls, ropes, and 
tviae^ baTe all a place of interest and importance in this Class. The heavier descriptions of flax mannfactnrca 
are enpfiUed chiefly from Dundee, Hull, Greenock, and Arbroatb. The machinery necessary to weave some of 
tbeae prodoctions, inch as sail-canvas, sacking, &c., presents a forcible contrast by the size and power of its 
Dvta to the lighto- and more elegant machines employed for wearing the fine cambrics used for a )>ockct-hand- 

SpecuDoni of articles manufactured from different kinds of flax and hemp will also attract notice, and illns- 
trate the peculiar applicability of these sorts far different fabrics. Jute, a fibrous material of recent introduc- 
tina from the F.»st Indiea, is becoming extensively employed, particularly for carpctini;a, sacking, baics, &c., in 
vhidi a fine material is not necesa^. The beautiful flax preiiared at Courtrai, and adapted exclusively for 
tbe neat delkate fabrics, is empWed in the manufacture of many of the articles exhibited. Britisli, Russian, 
China, and Manilla hemp, enters mto tbe composition of others. 

In 1841, npwarda of one million and a quarter cwts. of flax and tow were imported into En^Eland at a duty 
me penny a cwt,, yielding conaeqneutly about 5,500/. to the revenne. The flax factories in the Unitea 
Kinfjdom are of great mze and importance, and employ a lar^e number of opemtives in direct or indirect con- 
neiioD with thnn. If it should become pOMible to obt^n cheaply an adequate supply of flax of home ])roduc- 
1, and of tbe fit quality for the purpoees of the spinner, the dependency of this country upoa the East and 
mica for oottoD as a textile material would be greatly lessened, and an important field of commercial activity 
would be laid open at our oivn doom. But the properties of flax, and the tedious proces'Ksneo.-ssary for its pK|n- 
ntion. have hitherto proveil an obstacle to its more extensive employment. A variety of ex]>eriments on this 
mbject art however in progress, the ultimate result of which can scarcely be foreseen ; and it appears already to 
bara beoi proved by actual trial that this fibre can, aflcr preparation, be applied to the ordinary mnchincr}' of 
tbe cnttcn-mill, yam having been spun up to moderate numbers from flax thus prepared. Until recently flax 
mltiTBtioa has scarcely been fairlv attempted ; but it seems probable that in a short time extensive, and it 
may 1« hoped snoceasfnl, trials will be made to supply this country with a manufacturing material so intnniri- 
cally Talnable.— R. E.

[The antiquity and celebrity of the "fine linen" of 
Egypt, clearly points to that country, as the place where 
its manufacture originated. Specimens of this article 
¥rrapped about the Egyptian mummies, and supposed to 
be at least 3000 years old, are remarkable for fineness of 
texture. Linen was introduced into England, by the 
Flemings in 1253, as a substitute for the woollen shirting 
previously worn. Although Ireland now excels in this 
manufacture, it was not introduced into that country 
till 1634. 

One kind of linen is still called Holland, from the 
place where it was first manufactured; this article having 
been lai^ely imported for domestic use, before our home 
manufacture had arrived at such perfection as to take its 
place. Unbleached linen is called broi^-n Holland, and 
is used for various articles of clothing and upholstery; 
sileaia is a species of fine brown holland, glazed. Dowlas, 
is a strong kind of Irish linen, for shirting. Drill, is a 
stout twill for trousers. Damask, is a twilled fabric, 
similar to that made of silk, and much used for table- 
cloths ; Dunfermline, in Scotland, and Ardoyne and 
Lisbiun, in Ireland, are celebrated for the beauty and 
excellence of their manufactures in this article. • 

Brown damask is the same article unbleached, and 
being deemed stronger in this state, is used as mora 
economical. Diapers are damaaks of amaller idae and 
simpler patterns. There are also xmion ^*»'***^t and 
diapers, made of linen and cotton combined. ' 

Sheeting linens are of various names and qnalitiea, as 
Irish, Lancashire, and Scotch; also Rusna, Toikahire, 
and Bamsley; besides there are unions and imitatkniB of 
these, of which the Russia is the strongest and oosnest. 
Huckaback, is a species of very coarse dii^Mr used for 
towelling. Tick and union tick are well known articles 
for upholstery purposes. Canvas is usually made of 
hemp, but a finer sort is nuide from flax. Coarse osnTas 
is used for sail cloth, tents, and coverings of variooi 
kinds. The finest article made in linen, is called eambric 
or Batiste, from Cambray, where it was first made, dt 
Batiste, its first maker. French cambric is still much 
esteemed in the shape of handkerchiefs, though it is 
often equalled by our home manufacture. Scotch eambrio 
is a cotton fabric, made in imitation of French cambric 
La\('n is a species of very fine linen, approaching cambric 
in texture. — R. W.]

[Leather, such as that used for boots and shoes, is 
strictly a chemical product. The skins of a variety of 
animals are employed in the preparation of this article of 
universal use. The preparation of most varieties of lea-

A side-saddle with projecting "burrs'* in the forepart 
of the tree, to prevent the saddle from shifting to the near 
side and ^ling the horse, or slipping for^*ard; it allova 
the front iKirt of the saddle to be an inch lower than 
usual, enabling the rider to sit in a horizontal poaition. 
The safe, flap, and skirt are all in one piece, and covered 
with hog-skin. The design of the ornamental work on 
the heiuis aiul safe — the i-ose, shamrock, and thistle. The 
stirrup is a recent improvement made bv the exhibitor; it 
o]>ens with a spiing, and dLsengnges the rider s foot in 
case of a fall. 

Hunting saddle with elastic seat, on a new principle: 
invented by the exhibitor. The webs are attached to a 
strong arch of round st(.*el near the pommel, and so con- 
structed as to lK>ai' violent usage without injurj', giving 
additional Kti*ength to the tree; the action of the sprinff 
is not more than one-eighth of an inch, which is found 
to be sufficient to produce the requisite degree of daa-

Iziipnivt^l patent general htting middle, expiuiding with

deaul preawure, and spread the weight. 

Improved patent self-acting ela.stic spring roller, for

Improve*! patent safety rein, to enable the driver to 
haTe Oi>mplete control. 

Tlie gvnend htting saddle is constructed to expand witli 
the action <»f the muscles, and si>rea(.l the pi^ssure or 
«-«:4rht over a greater surface; also to pn>tect the withers 
fr^m Ijeing wrung — a fault fretjuently occasione<l by the 
xime "{ tl»e common s^iddle. It in objected to the common 
ftkdtii« th.'it in the event of a horse stumbling, the shoul- 
der* are forc*r«l up into the gullet of the pommel, an<i the 
MwiUe-trve is often bntkcn; but even when this is not the 
cb^. the onfinement of the shoulders invariably prt^ vents 
thfir free action, and consoquently the horso loses all 
cLAaoe of recnvering itself. 

The spring bar is intended to relievo the horse of much 
«-.;riat. and at the same time afford ease and comfort to 

the rider, as well as protection from the injuries that so 
often happen on the pommel and cantle of the saddle ; 
these, in the new invention, being soft and elastic. The 
spring bar is applicable to side saddles. 

The self-acting elastic roller obviates the injury result- 
ing from the use of the present tight roller, which, nqt 
being elastic, when buckled round a yoimg animal, es- 
sentially retards and ii^ures the formation of the chest, 
while it confines and weakens the action of the lungs.

[The pr oce s s of oil or chamois leather dressing, as prac- 
tised in Eogland, consists in beating fish oil into the pores 
of the skin, and afterwards partially drying or oxygenating 
the oil. When the skin is perfectly saturated by the re- 
pr oce s s of hammering in the mill, and partial 
it is allowed to become hot by natural fermeuta- 
tion, and then, by washing in strong alkali, becomes the 
•ofiost and most pliable of all kinds of leather.]

Japanned border, bag, horse, and split hides. Black, 
green, blue, drab, maroon, crimson, and brown ena- 
melled hides. The border hide is manufactured from 
the hide of an ox, being (as far as practicable) left the 
whole thickness; the other hides (with the exception of 
the horse) are the same description of hide, split by ma- 
dhine to any required thickness ; thus making two, whereas 
formerly the hide had to be shaved to the proper thick- 
■•■• by manual labour. 

The japanned split hide shows the flesh side curried 
anil japanned for coach purposes.

Specimens of skins from the Arctic Regions, belonging

from their importation of 1851 ; prepared and arranged by 

the exhibitors, from No. 1 to No. 27. 

[The immense tracts of country over which the Hudson's 
Bay Company has control may bo considered as vast 
hunting-grounds, affording a varied and exhaustless sup- 
ply of furs. The territoiial possessions of this Company 
cover nearly one-eighth of the habitable globe. Russia 
is next m order and im[>ortance in this respect, but with 
a diflferent race of animals. The fur produce of North 
America and the Canadas is also important. As we ap- 
proach the tropics and the warmer regidns, the silky 
fur with which the animals are clothed in the northern 
climes disappears, and fur of a totally different character 
is mot with, which, although splendid in appearance, is 
not adapted for warmth or general use.

Chinese markets, being highly prized in these countries. 
The cross and red fox are used by the Chinese, Greeks, 
Persians, &c., for cloak-linings and for trimming dresses. 
The white and blue fox is used in this and other coun- 
tries for ladies' wear. In the sumptuary laws passed in 
the reign of Henry III., the fox is named with other furs 
then in use. — J. A. N.] 

6. Group of otter {Lutra Canadensis). 

[The Hudson's Bay North American and European 
otters are chiefly exported for the use of the Russians, 
Chinese, Greeks, and others, for cape, collars, trimming 
national dresses, robes, &c. Upwards of 500 otters, the 
produce of Great Britain, during the last year, were ex- 
ported. — J. A. N.] 

7. Group of beaver (Castor Amcricanm). 

[The beaver in former years was one of the Hudson's 
Bay Company's most valuable productions; but since its 
use has been almost entirely discontinued in the manu- 
fitcture of hats, it has lost much of its value. Experiments 
have, however, been made, and with prospect of success, 
to adapt its fine and silky wool to weaving purposes. 
The skin of the beaver is prepared by a new process, after 
which the surface is cut by a new and ingenious machine, 
and the result is a beautiful fur for ladies' wear. It is 
exported in its prepared state to various parts of Europe 
and the East. The rich white wool from the under part 
of the beaver is largely exported to France. — J. A. N.] 

8. Group of lynx {Rlis Canadensis), 

9. „ lynx cat (Felis Rnfa), 

[Both the above furs, when dyed, were formerly much 
used. It is still dyed and prepared, and exported in 
large numbers for the American market. In its nattuid 
state, it is a greyish white, with dark spots, and is used 
by the Chinese, Greeks, Persians, and others, for cloaks, 
linings, facings, &c. : it is very soft, warm, and light. 
The fur formerly called the lucem is the lynx. — J. A. N.] 

10. Group of wolf (Canis Occidentalis), 

11. „ ^YiQT {Mtistcla Canadensis), 

12. ,, wolvenn (Gulo lusats). 

[The wolves are generally use<l as cloak and coat linings 
in Russia, and other cold coimtries; also for sleigh- 
coverings, and open travelling carriages. The other skins 
enumerated are principally used for trimmings, linings, 
&c. The tail of the fisher is very valuable, and exclusively 
used by the Jews. — J. A. N.] 

13. Group of badger (T'.ixidea Labradoritt). 

[The North American badger is exported for general 
wear; its soft fine fur renders it suitable for that purpose. 
The European badger, on the contrary, from the natufe 
of its hair, is extensively used for the manufacture of 
shaving brushes. — J. A. N.] 

14. Group of martin or sable {Mastela mirtes), 

[The Hudson's Bay martin is consumed in large quan- 
tities in this country, in France, and in Germany. The 
lining of a mantle made of black sables, with white 
spots, and presented by the Bishop of Lincoln to Henry I., 
was valued at 100/. In Henry the Eighth's reign, a 
sumptuary law confined the use of the fur of sables to the 
nobility above the rank of viscounts. — J. A. N.] 

15. Group of mink {^fttstela vison), 

[The mink is exclusively the produce of the Hudson's 
Biy possesnions and North America; it is consumed in 
Euroi)C in immense numbers, principally for ladies' wear. 
—J, A. N.J 

16. Group of musquash, or musk-rat (Fiber ztbeihicfu), 

[The musquash, or large American musk-rat, iBimporiad 
into this country in immense numbers: it was formeiiy 
much used in the manufacture of hats, but the introduc- 
tion of the silk hat has entirely superseded its use; and 
the fur is employed for wear after having undergone pre- 
paration. — J. A. N.]

19. „ white hare (Z^pttf <//<icui/is).

[The Hudson's Bay rabbit is one of the leaat valuabk 
skins imported by this Company : like all fun from th« 
Polar regions, its hair is fine, long, and thick, but the 
skin is so fragile and tender that it is almost lueleu.—

21. Group of black bear ( Ursits Amerioanud), 

22. „ brown bear ( CVuss, var. Amaicanvs), 

23. ,, grey hesjT (Ursus ferox), 

[The lazge North American black bear is technioilly 
termed the army bear, because it is generally used for 
military purposes in this and other countries, for csp% 
pistol-holsters, rugs, carriage hammerclothi, sleigh oover- 
ings, &c. The fine black cub bears are much songlii 
after in Russia for making shube-linings, cottt>liningi 
trimmings, facings, &c. The other sorts, with the laigt 
grey bears, for sleigh-coverings and aocompaniments, fte. 
The white Polar bear, the supply of which is very liw»it^, 
is generally made into rugs, which are often bordered 
with the black and grey bear. The brown or Isabella 
bear is at the present time used for ladies* wear in 
America.— J. A. N.] 

24. Group of sea-otter (Euirydra maritima), 

[The sea-otter is most sought after by the traders, on 
account of its great commercial value: it is said to be the 
royal fur of China, and is much used by the officers of 
state, mandarins, &c. It is in great esteem in Biiiisit, 
and principally worn by gentlemen for collars, cufi^ 
facings, trimmings, &c. On account of its great weight 
it is rarely used by la<:lio8. — J. A. N]

and are imported into this country in immense numben. 
They are purchaseil here by the merchants who attend 
the i>eriodical fur sales, and who dispose of large quantitios 
at the great fair at Leipsic : they are principally used in 
Russia, and throughout Germany, for lining shubes and 
coats, and are exclusively confined to gentlemen's wear.

32. Group of Russian sable (Maries zibellina), 

[The Russian or Siberian sable is one of the most costly 
fora, and is manufactured into linings, which are gene- 
rally used as presents by great potentates, being of the 
Taloe of 1000 guineas and upwards. The Lord Mayor, 
Aldermen, and SherifEi, &c., of the city of London, have 
their robes and gowns furred with this sable accord- 
ing to their respective ranks. The tail of the sable is 
also used in the manufacture of artists' pencils or brushes. 
ffrwis produces about 25,000 of these valuable and 
aaUwiiuad skins annually.] 

33. Gtroup of stone martin {Martcs cUbogularis), 

[The stone martin is widely spread over Europe, and 
derives its name from the fSnct of its selecting rocks, 
mined castles, ftc., as its haunts. The French excel in 
dying this fur, and it is in consequence termed French 

34. Group of baum martin (Afcwtea abietum), 

[The baum or wood martin is so named from its being 
iutaiia bly found in woods and pine forests in Europe. 
Th« fur in its natural state is similar to the North 
American sable, but ooaner. It is distinguished by the 
bright jellow colour of its throat; when dyed, the fur 
closely resembles the real sable.] 

3^ Group of ermine (Muatela ermtnea), 

[TIm ermine is produced in most countries ; but the best 
is from Russia, Sweden, and Norway, and is killed in 
winter when the fur is pure white (except the tail, 
with xta jet bla<^ tip), it being at that season in its greatest 
j-rf'-ction : in summer and spring it ia grey and of little

in the greatest perfection), in such immense niuubers as 
woidd appear almost incredible; the importation from 
thence to this country alone, last year, exceeding2,000,000. 
The celebrated Weisenfels lining is made from the white 
part of the dark-blue squirrel. A full-sized cloak -lining 
weighs only 25 ounces : it is known as the petit gris. For 
colder cUmates the linings are made from the back or 
plain grey part of the squirrel, the best having part of the 
tail left on each skin. Russia produces about 23,000,000

[The grey and black Russian lamb is mostly used for 
gentlemen's cloiik and coat linings, for facings, collars, 
caps, &c., and also for army puq>oses. The Astracjui 
lamb is a rich, wavy, glossy, black skin, very short in the 
fur, having the apf)earanco of beautiful watere<l silk : 
in order to obtain this choice skin, it is averred that 
the psu*ent sheep is destroyed a certain time befoi-e the 
birth of the lamb. The Persian, grey, and black lamb, 
is covered with very minute curls ; this is produced, it is 
Kiiid, by the aniuml being, as soon as bom, sewn up 
tightly in a leathern skin, which prevents the curl ex- 
juinding. The Hungarian lamb is prodiiced in that 
country in immense numbers; of it the national coat, 
called the Juhasz Bunda, is niaile. In the sununer or 
wet weather the fur or woolly part is worn outside; in 
NNinter, when wiu-mth is ro<]uiivd, it is revei-sed: the skin 
is tanned or dressed in a way peculiju* to the country, 
and decorated ami embroidered in accordance with the 
means tuid t;wte of the weiu*er. In Spain, the lamb is 
used for the well-known and char.icteristic short jacktrt of 
that country, which is adt>rned with tili^Tce nilvcr

[The cat, when properly attended to, and bred purposely 
for its skin, nupplies a most useful and durable fur; in 
Holland it is bred and kept in a confined state till the fur 
is in its greatest p^irfection, and is fed entirely on fish. 
In other countries, and especially in our ov^-u, it is pro- 
duced in large numbers. The wild cat is much larger 
and longer in the fur, and is met with in extensive forests, 
particularly in Hungor}'; the colour is grey, siK>tted with 
black, and its softness and durability render it suit- 
able for cloak and coat linings, for which purpose it 
is much used. The black species is also much in request, 
and similarly used, and, ^ith the spotted and striped va- 
rieties, is made into wn4)per8 for open carriages, sleigh 
coverings, and railway tnivelUug.]

[The English rabbit, both in its ^-ild and domestic 
state, abounds in such numbers that the supply iri inex- 
haustible: it was formerly employed to mnke the felt 
bodies or foundation for the beaver hat ; at present, not 
being used for tliat purpose, it is dressed, dyed, and 
manufactured in immense quantities into various useful 
articles. The wool has recently been useil iu making 
a peculiar cloth, adapted for ladies' wear. Tlie English 
silver-grey rabbit wiis originally a breed peculiar to Lhi- 
colnshire, where great attention was paid to it. Warrens 
have since been formed in various parts of the country. 
It is in great demand in China and Russia, to which coun- 
tries it is invariably expoi-teil, on account of the high 
price there obtained. The white Polish rabbit is a 
breed peculiar to tliat countrj*. The finer sorts of white 
rabbit are much use<l as substitutes for ennine. So 
late as the reign of Henry the Eighth, such inqwrtance 
was attached to the coney or rabbit skin, that the 
charter of tlie Skinners' Company sliows they were worn 
by nobles and gentlemen. Acts of Ptu-liament were passed 
regulating their sole and exjwrtation, which are still in

[Tlie seal is an inliabitant of most countries; it is found 
in the high northern latitudes in immense numbers; 
ships arc purpos^'ly fittwl out for its Ciipture; the oil pro- 
duced by the animsil, together with its skin, render it 
(connected as it is with the whale fisherj') inqiortant to 
the trader, and interesting to tho naturalist. The skins 
ore salted and packe<l in casks, in which state they ore 
sent to this country; they are then sorted and Belecte<l 

for various purposes; those suitable for leather pais into 
the tanners' hands, and make a beautiful leather, which is 
used for Lulies' shoes. The blue bock, the hair, and the 
silver seal, are dressed and used in their natural state, 
and also dyed and exported in large quantities. The 
fur seal, the supply of which is always small ocympaiyNl 
with the other kinds, umlei^goes a prooess to prepare it 
for its intended use. It is brought at the present time 
to a great degree of perfection in this country; when 
divested of tho long coarse hair (which protects it in 
its native element) there remains the rich, curly, mUkj, 
yellowish down, in which state it was fonnerly used for 
travelling caps and other purposes. It is now seldom 
marlc use of in that state, but dyed a beautifbl Vandyke

wliich for the rapid multi])lication of news])apcrs is extending. By this arrangement, the vertical, the power 
of production is only limited by the size of the machine. 

Among many interesting specimens of typography, those which exhibit the production of books in other 
tongues, by tyi)e cast in England, will attract notice. The Holy Scriptures are exhibited in one hundred and 
fifty different languages — ^a noble evidence of the highest application of industry to the enlightenment and 
welfare of mankind. Beautiful specimens of the bookbinder's art are likewise shown. 

An envelope-folding machine, placed at the side of the Main Avenue, is a striking instance of the successful 
application of mechanical movements to the performance of the most delicate and complicated actions. By 
tliis machine, which would in strictness appear to belong to a preceding Class, the movements of the hand of 
the folder are not only exactly imitated, but the result is more accurate and certain, and the power of pro- 
duction is very largely increased. 

Tlie peculiar interest which attaches to the objects in this Class, as the most powerful agents in the social 
and intellectual improvement of man, cannot fail to be awakened by the most casual inspection. Pai>er, 
))rinting, and bookbinding, are, however, only the raw material, the application and reproduction of which is 
dei)cn(lent u^wn the powers of the mind, not on those of matter. — R. E.

[In the interesting collection of papers in the Exhi- 
bition, from various pa|)er-mills, there are groups whose 
degrees of excellence must be estimated by very diflferent 
standards ; as, for instance, the brown wrapping and the 
fine hand-made <lrawing papers, the sugar and the fine 
printing papers, the bibulous plate paper for engrravers' 
Uf*e, and the hai-d sized \vTituig pai>ers. Collectively it 
exhibits, at one view, the various qmdities which are 
sought for by English consumers, and which, in many 
i-e^pects, differ from those required by our Continental 
neighbours ; as an example, may be quoted the substantial 
Knglish writing papers and the thin post papers of France 
and Belgium, whose different qualities arise from the 
difference of postal regulations in those countries. 

The system of producing paper in continuous lengths 
by machinery' was first introduced by Messrs. Fourdrinier 
into this country, they haWng purchased the patent 
right of Mr. Gamble, who, in 1804, obtained permission 
fi*om the French Government to bring to England a 
model of a machine, invented in 1799, by Louis Robert, 
who was then employed in the jMper works of Essonne. 
Tliis machine of Mr. Roberts ^*a8 essentially imperfect, 
l>ut it was brought to a state of great perfection for Messrs, 
Fourdrinier, by the ingenuity of Blr. Bryan Donkin; 
upon this has been founded the varions descriptions of 
paper-making machines which have since that time been 
introduced. They consist essentially of contrivances 
by which the paper i>ulp is made to flow on the surface 
of an endless wire web ; a rapid up and down motion 
being given to it for the purpose of shaking the water out 
of the pulp, and thus producing a complete interweaving 
of the textile filaments. The continuous roll of paper 
thus fonjied is turned off upon a second solid cylinder, 
covere<l with felt, iq>on whicli it is condensed by a third, 
iuid eventually delivei'cd to drying rollers.

Envelope -folding machine, inventeid by Edwin Hill 
Warren De la Rue. 

[The following is the action of this machine. The 
feeding-boy places the previously cut blank enrelopeB 
on to a small platform, which rises and falls in the 
rectangular recess fonncd by the C}-lindrioal azea of 
the folders (shown open in the engraving) ; the bear- 
ings of the foldera serving by their elongation to guide 
the envelope into its place at the moment of the small 
Ijlatfttrui falling. A plunger now descends and croases 
the envelope by carrying it between the folder-axea, 
at the same time turning the flai)s upwards in a 
vertical direction: the plunger, which descended as a 
whole, now di\'ides into two parts, the ends rising and 
the sides remaining down to hold the envelope until the 
end -folders have operated; these latter turn over the 
flaps, the one on the right of the feeding-lad taking a 
slight precedence, and being closely followed by the 
gumming apparatus, which takes gum from an endless 
blanket working in a trough, and after applying it to the 
two end flaps, retires, at the same time the remuning 
half of the plunger moves upwards, to allow of the side 
folders turning over the remaining two fli^is, the folder 
nearest the feeder taking precedence. During these 
operations, the end-folders have remained at rest, and the 
whole four open simultaneously. The taking-off appa- 
ratus, with its Angers tipped with vulcanised caoutchouc, 
now moves forward over the folded envelope, whicli ia 
lifted upwanls by the rise of the snudl platform and re- 
treats with it, placing each envelope, as it is successively 
folded, under those which have preceded it. The enve- 
lo|»o.^ arc now knocked over on to an endless blanket, and

Id illustration of the articles lometimes sent by post, 
it may be dted, that some yeara back Profeaaor Henalow 
was in the babit of receiving, from membeia of an agri- 
cultural society which he had established, Bpedmens of 
living slugi of toHoui kinds, sent for examination, with 
a view to his advice for their extermination. Were 
it not for the cheap postage many of the publiahing 
societies now in existence would not have been eatebltshed, 
on account of the eipenae of oollecting manuscripta, 
transmitting proofs, and circulating books. But it ia not 
only in this way that the postal refona ha* extended its 
benefits, for with the reduction of rates a liberal poUoy 
haa increased the faciUUea of deliveiy by the estahliah- 
ment since 1839 of 4,600 new post-offlcM, which an 
estimated aa serving about 14,000 village*. 

Returning to the manubcture of envelopes, we find 
but little progress until March 1B45, when Ur. Edwin 
Hill and Mr. Warren De la Rue took out a patent for 
cutting and folding machinery. Until this period, enve- 
lopes hod been folded by hand, by means of a bone 
"folding-stick," an experienced workwoman folding about 
3,000 per day.]

after it has dried, apply the gold or silver leaf with 
heated tools of the required design. The glair softens 
and attaches itself to the gold, which is readily removed

[A map may be defined as a projection of the surface of 
the globe on a plane surface. As the form of the earth is 
nearly that of a sphere, it is evident that the only map 
which can truly represent the positions of places is that 
on the surface of a globe. That projection which comes 
the nearest to the true representation of the globe is 
termed the ''globular." Qu' Mercator's projection some 
of the difficulties attendant-; upon circular projection are 
avoided : all the lines are right lines, and all the meri- 
dians are equidistant. The advantages of this projection 
are, that the bearing of every .place is true with ^respect 
to other places, and distances may be measured correctly 
from it; but the spaces between the parallels of latitude 
increase as they recede from the equator, and in high 
latitudes the departure from truth is great. — J. Q.]

\xA\^ Vieen made use of for letters are raised above the 
*i.rf jce of the paper, so that the sense of touch may supply 
thr* wMit Iff sight. These characters, which are repre- 
M*&ti9ii in the annexed cut, are simple in their form, 
b»:nz a i^traight line, a curved line, and a <lot placed 
in tiiflV-rent jxisitions; by this means the complication

A* the fin^r cannot pass over a word so rapidly 
iiP th*- fve, grt!at«T fluency is securr<l }»y the use of 
c ntrawrtj«-nii similar to those employed in short-hand 
^r.'Auz. Many who have lost their sight in advanced 

life, and whose sense of touch has become less acute 
from hard work, have been enabled to read this simple 
alphabet, when they have found it impossible to ms- 
tinguish more complicated characters. An adequate 
knowledge of the system can be acquired by a pupil in six 
months, and by many in a shorter period. The system 
was proposed by the late Mr. Lucas, of Bristol, and was 
reduced to practice by the Rev. J. W. Qowring, in the 
year 1842, under the direction of the London Societv for 
teaching the blind to read. The greater portion of the 
Scriptures, with the lituigy of the Church of England, 
and various books of elementary instruction, have already 
been published in these characters. 

Chrphering boards for the blind. The boards being 
perforated with square holes, types with simple cha- 
racters raised in their ends can be arranged in any order. 
Five characters similar to those employed in reading are 
used in different positions, each havmg a numeral value. 

Maps for the blind. The land is raised above the water, 
and cities, mountains, rivers, and boimdary lines are all 
marked so as to be easily felt. 

Qeometrical boards for the blind. 

Specimen of embossed copies, used for instructing the 
pupils in the common system of writing, the pf^r used 
being prepared with embossed lines. 

Apparatus for enabling the blind to emboss Lucas's 
characters, and thus communicate with each other. The 
characters are raised on a stamp, having ten arms, fitting 
into the aperture of a slide so that the letters cannot be 
incorrectly formed ; this slide moves along a bar, and 
indicates, by means of a rack, the distance it has been 
moved. The lines are kept equidistant by the bar which 
moves down the board, which is retained in its position 
by a simple contrivance. 

A specimen of music for the blind, in raised characters, 
each character denoting both the sound and its length, 
whereby the stave is dispensed with. The music can 
be written by means of the embossed copies. 

Chess boards for the blind. The black squares are 
raised, and the pieces have pegs to fasten them in the 
board. The black pieces are distinguished by a point at 
the top. The last three articles were invented by Mr. W. 

Specimens of basket work and knitting clone by the

[The invention of characters in relief was among the 
earliest measures resorted to for the instruction of the 
blind. Mr. Gall, of Edinburgh invented an alphabet upon 
this j)rinciple, called 'Hhe triangular." Moveable letters, 
place<l in grooves, were aften^-ards employed, but aban- 
doned. A string alphabet, like the " quipos," or knotted 
cord of Peru, for distant communication, ^iis proposed. 
Various other attempts for this purpose were made, until 
Haiiy invented the art of printing in relief; this was then 
aj)plied to Mr. Gall's triangular alphabet. By the system 
of Mr. Lucas the repetition of numerous letters is avoided ; 
simple characters are usotl ; particles are mostly repre 
sented by initial letters, a system which is followed upon 
the frequent i-epetition of a word. — R. He.]

[Formerly the application of coloured designs to fabrics 
of various kinds was entirely effected by what is called 
block-printing, and which, in fact, closely resembles type 
printing. A block of wood or metal, or a combination 
of both, being engraved with the pattern, received the 
colour by the ordinary means, and this was then trans- 
ferred by hand to the fabric. For every different colour 
a different block was required, and in complicated pat- 
terns, with many colours, the process was excessively 
tedious. It is, however, still largely employed where 
g^reat care in the application of the colour and sharpness 
of definition in the pattern is required, but block- 
printing can only be remunerative in the better descrip- 
tions of goods, as the infinitely more rapid and econo- 
mical process of cylinder printing has almost superseded 
it for the production of those of commoner kinds. —

perfection by many continental dyers, and by the dyers 
and ealico-printsfs of this country. Peculiar circum-

vine or i\'y-leaf, or of the honeysuckle, have been julojited, 
they are flat. The oriental Cachmere style, the stuffs 
and cju'pet.s of Persia and Turkey, the TaH^in of the

"nie lace productions of Honiton and Buckinghamshire have long attained universal renown. These laces are 
chiefly wmufcht by hand at tbo homes of the persons concerned in tlieir manufacture ; but recently a combina- 
tion of*machiue-tnade lace and pillow-made ornament has been introduced under the title of "appliqude lace." 
Tbe machine lace of Nottingham has scarcely an inferior d^rce of celebrity : in that town factories are in 
almost ooostant work producing, by the aid of a large number of the most delicate and costly automatic engines, 
this slender fabric. In a preceding Class these machines are described, and ore eihibiled in motion in another 
part of tbe Building. In tbo South Central Gallery are some beautiful sjiecimcns of the intricate and elegant 
ornamentation capable of being imparled by these machines. Of the lace made by hand various interesting 
apedmens are shown which represent much patient eGbrt in the iuBtniction of tbe poor in this art, and conslder-

[Few departments of ornamental industry have ex-

troduction of mechanical power, as that of the lace manu- 
facture. The lace of Honiton, in Devon, has long rivalled 
the most beautiful and costly protluctiona of the Continent. 
At one period during the last war, veils of Honiton laco 
sold for very large sums, as much as 100 guineas having 
been paid for fine 8x>ecimens. Honiton lace is entirely 
made on the pillow by liand labour.]

[The application of machinery to the production of 
lace is rery remarkable and interesting, as probably few 
introductions of machinery to textile manufactures pro- 
duced 80 sudden an alteration on the expiration of the 
patent protecting it, in the ordinary course of fabrication. 
The bobbin-net machine was invented in 1809 ; it came 
into general use in 1823, and an immense stimulus was 
communicated to the manufacture. The powers of pro- 
duction of this machine are to hand labour nearly as 
30,000 to 5, and the lace produced by it has, in plain 
article*, wholly superseded that made by hand. — R. £.]

Carpet made at the patent Axminstor carpet manufac- 
tory, Glasgow, for Her Majesty, designed by L. Qruner, 

[The production of the peculiar description of carpets, 
known as " Axminster," form the principal manufacture 
of that town. It appears to have been commenced in 
imitation of the style of Turkey carpets, but a variety 
of patterns have been produced. The same kind of 
carpets are, however, produced in other places. The thick 
and soft pile of these carpets distinguishes them from 
others. In the present example, a peculiar modification 
of the ordinary process of manufacture has been intro- 
duced, by which the worsted is thrown to the surflEMje, 
and does not appear on the other side at all. — K. £.]

[In a country like this, afl well aa over tho Highlands

of considerable im[)ortance, and the using of tho native 
dyes, particularly tho crotal an<l tho rue, contribute (as 
showni in the specimens exhibited) to the sources of 
employment for the people, and constitute a consideniblo

Queen Elizabeth, it is well known, was very fond of

White gloves are also presented to the Judges on occasion

which practice has never been satisfactorily explained.

causes of premature baldness, is the deficient ventilation, 
and the undue contraction of the rim of most hats. In 
the present instance an attempt to obviate these defects 
is exhibited.]

than the Dunstable. Its application to the manufacture 
of ornamental articles is illustrated in the articles ex- 
hibited. It deserves notice, that of late an increase in 
the import of unmanufactured material (straw, &c.) from 
Italy has taken phvce, and has been accompanied by a 
corresponding decrease in that of manufactured articles 
in plait. The plaiting of foreign material is carried on 
to a largo extent in this country.]

Qreenham, Newbury, Berks, who engaged, on the day 
they were presented, to make their wool into a piece of 
cloth, that should be made into a coat by 9 o'dock of 
the same evening. 

The sheep were immediately shorn, and the wool sorted 
and spun. The yam was spooled, warped, loomed, and 
woven. The cloth was burred, milled, rowed, dyed, dried, 
sheared, and pressed. The cloth having been thus made 
from the fleece in 1 1 hours, was put into the hands of 
the tailor at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, who completed 
the coat at 20 minutes past G, having bemi only 2 hours 
and 20 minutes in making it : Mr. Coxeter then presented 
the coat to Sir John Throckmorton, who appeal^ with 
it on, before a large assembly of spectators.

[By the number of gauge is meant the quantity of loops 
within a given space, and hence when these are increased 
within that space, the quality of the fabric is increased in 
delicacy and value. 

The invention of the stocking frame is generally ascribed 
to William Lee, an expelled Cambridge student, who, 
watching the fingers of his wife, as she toiled for their 
mutual support by knitting stockings, devised this 
machine. By Elizabeth and James I., Lee was denied 
that protection and encouragement due to inventors; ho. 

however, succeeded in receiving, at the hands of Sully, the 
minister of the French King Henry, an acknowledgmait 
which was denied by his own countrymen. Lee died in 
France, and one of his apprentices brought the menufac- 
ture back into England, where it has been finally esta- 
blished and successfully carried out^ Kottingfaam and 
Leicester being its grand centres.]

The present Class in some d^rec CArriM the attentioii a^n among tlio implements ufteil in maniirHcturcp, and 
oompreheDils nil those touls not included in Clasfi C. Tlic tools t>elcinp;ing (u the present Cinss are princi|ially 
uf the snullcst description employetl in arts requiring delicacy and precision of tnuch, rather than the exercise 
of mechanical force. The knives and other Bhar(> inBtrumenls, coming under the general dcuoniinatiou or 
Cutlerj, are ohjecte of familiar knowledge and employment. 

The Class is divisible into two Sub-Classes ; the first of these, A., includes Cutlery, such as Knives uid 
Porks, Ten and Pocket Knives, Razors, Scissors, and Shears ; of these some are employed forjiersonal, domestic, 
1^ oratuoerclal pur|x«es — some for use in vniious trades and handicrafts — and some l>elong to the class of oma- 
mnit»l rkther tlian useful articles ; ]!. comprehends Files and other small Kdge Tools, not included among 
lUnufkcturing Tools in Class 6— of these, some arc applicable to the purposes of the en<!ineer and smith, others 
lo those of masons, &c, A finer kinil ia employed bv jewellers, lapiilaries, watchmakers, and other workers in 
phihw^^icy JDStrumcnts or in precious metais; otliers are used for woodwork by caqieuters, cabinet-makers, 
te., and others Iw artists and engravers. 

For those articles tn this Claiis which have not been sent from Sheffield, search will be made in llic North 
Gallery. The Sheffield goods, bolongin« in strict ]itopric(y to tliis Class, are included amon^: Itardwani in the 
ft^lowing Class, and will bo found in the Building on the "South Siile of the Nave, about midway l-etu-ecn the 
Transept and the Western extremity. The mnnufactun's of Shellield being tlie most im|iortant, it is necessary 
to defer the notice of them to the succeeding Class, for the reasons just slated. Nevertheless, in the Metropolis 
ilwlf a verj- ci'nsidcrable ammiMt of the !H.>»t of articlrs of cutlery are mn.le ; but llic pnijiortion of

[Dr. Scorosby^ who has devoted a hirge share of hia 
attention to the couBtructiou of magneto, adopts the 
following mode of imparting magnetism to steel bars. 
He places the bar to be magnetised upon two powerful 
magnets, and then draws them gently apart until the 
upper bar rests with its ends on either end of the magnets; 
in this position it is allowed to rest for a short time, and 
then slid off laterally, the other side beuig turned down, 
and the process repeated until the bar of steel is 
thoroughly saturated. Dr. Scoresby insists upon the im- 
portance of using the hardest steel ; and the most powerful 
magnets which he has constructed are made of a series 
of thin plates of steel, hardened thi^oughout, each one of 
the series being separately magnetised. — R. IL]

sub-marine telegraphs. 

[Iron wire ropes are of equal strength with a hempen 
rope of four times the weight, and resist the wear and 
tear they are subjected to in "running gear" twice as 
long. If the surface of a wire-rope be left in any part 
unprotected by some coating impenetrable to moisturo, 
the internal fibres become in process of time oxidised. 
and unseen decay goes forward. Iron cleaned by add and 
plunged into a bath containing melted sine, becomes 
coated with that metal, and the parts left unzinked alone 
rust. Iron thus treated is said to be "galvanised.** S. C]

A bank-safe lock. The peculiarity of thin lock consists 
in an extension of the key after it is inserted in the lock, 
and a secret connection between the interior of the key 
and two of the players. The two inclined planes on the 
under side of the wards open or shut the extension of the 
key as it passes over them ; the part of the key thus 
extended operates on two players placed beyond the reach 
of picklocks, while, at the same time, the main part of 
the key works other two players, which are again operated 
on by the secret apparatus in the interior of the key. 
This secret apparatus can be removed at pleasure, and the 
proper key then becomes unfit to work the lock, and all 
skeleton keys, however well fitted to pass the wards, will 
not operate on the players.

[The ease with which zinc can be turned into various

general use; it is reduced into sheets from strips, by the 
ordinary process of rolling ; when undergoing the same it 
is heated, but not to a high temperature ; in soldering, the 
seam is touched with muriatic acid (spirit of salt) on the 
part to be united. Zinc may be drawn into tubes, &c., 
with facility, and stamped into various shapes. — W.C. A.]

[The origin of the term "bloom" is not very evident; 
certain it is, that the most ancient iron-works in this 
country were called **bloomarie8," or "bloom-smithies." 
Blooms are lumi>s of iron, and are produced in such a 
way as to ensure great toughness. Such as the one 
exhibited are usually formed by melting slags in fur- 
naces at such a moderated heat that time is allowed for 
the metal to separate from the silicious matter which 
contains the impurities, which then runs down into a 
basin, where all the particles get agglutinated and form 
a pasty mass, which is removed by a hooked pole in

Registered conducting leaf stove, adapted for heating 
large apartments in houses exposed to a north-eastern 
aspect. The difficulty of heating large rooms to a com- 
foi-tiiblo teuijwrature, in the dejith of winter, led to the 
invention of the stove exhibited. In an apiirtment almost 
insensible to the action of the ordinarj' fire-place, and in 
which the thermometer indiaited bu^^a feeble tendency 
to rise two houra after fire-lighting, it was aflfocted to 
the extent of 20 degrees in little more tlum as many 
minutes after lighting a fire in the leaf stove. The sen- 
sitiveness of the leaves to the diffusion of heat is so great 
that the combustion of a few shavings or a little i)!i|>er in 
the fire-place is immediately juid sensibly felt in the 
ajmrtment. Such a result, obtained not only without 
any sacrifice of, but in a«ldition to, the comfort of an 
ojHjn fire in the onlinary fire-plivco, cleai'ly demonstrates 
the value of the heat which we jHjnnit to pass up the 
chimney. By the leaf stove it is rendereil available, and 
msule to circulate in the apartment, or may be shut off at 

The conducting leaf stove is fonned of i)lates of metal 
so plitced that e;icli <»ne is a conducting leaf, a iM)rtion of 
which g«H*rt down, aw it were, into contact with the fire, 
and is exiH)sed to the direct jution of the heat. Tho 
heat thus ivceived is r.ipidly (listrilmtcHl over the whole 
siu-face of the leaf. When it is desiix'd to tiike a<lvantage 
of the heat connnunic:ite<l by conduction, it is only 
nee<lful to set the valves ojHjn, and permit the air to 
circtilate aroimd the loaves; by closing the valves, the 
circulation is snj>presse<l or mi>ililied at pleasure. The 
rapidity of the c«»ndiution of the heat pivvents the metal 
attaining a high tirmiK'nitm-e. The principle of this stove 
is to diti'us«' a large volume of air at a genial temjH?rature 
by tlu^ combicting jMnver of extensive sm-fiwes. In onli- 
naiT stoves, m:is-»«'s of metal heat small volumes of air 
to a high tt-miK'nitiire, by whirh it is rt-ndered unwhole- 
some. This stove an«l its interior construction are shown 
in the next \Kvji\

Steel plate for the use of engravers, machine-ruled, by 
C. Mottram, Esq., of London. The sky tint upon this 
plate is perhaps the most severe test to which a steel plate 
can be subjected ; the surface is free from spots or seams ; 
and it is exhibited to show that steel is well adapted to 
the wants of the etcher and engraver. 

I*roof impression from the plate on India paper. 

[An entire change in engra\'ing has taken place by the 
substitution of steel for copper plates. An engra\'ing 
made ujKDn coi>per is speedily rendered useless by the 
process of inking, and the friction necessiiry to remove 
the superfluous ink. The rubbing with whitening to 
clean the face of the plate, wears away the surface, and 
renders it valueless after a few thousand impressions. 
This is not the case with a steel plate; an instance is on 
rcconl where 500,000 copies were printed from one plate. 

The Queen's head on the postage stamp has been only 
once engraved. It had, in 1842, been multiplied 6,000 
times, that is to say, the original produced 6,000 plates, 
which printed all the postivge stamps of the above kind 
which ha^l Ijcen used since the introduction of Rowland 
Hill's measure up to the period stated. 

The multiplication of a steel plate is a feature of some 
iraporijmce : a plate is engraved and hardened ; from this 
an impression is taken upon a softened steel roller; this 
steel roller is then hanlened, and softened steel jilates 
being pjused under it, an impression is imparted to them; 
they are in turn hardene<l, and are equal to the original 
as to their impressions. This method is a<lopte<l in bauk- 
note engraving; and the postjige-stamp plates are pro- 
duced by the same means. — W. C. A.]

The rod of stool of which they are made is about half an

on both sides of the top, which is instrumeutal in thin- 
ning the edge, and much facihtates the operation of

[Steel may be regarded as a carburet of iron ; it is 
usually manufactured by the process of cementation. 
The cement, as it is called, consists of the charcoal of 
hard wood — sometimes soft is employed — mixed with a 
small quantity of ashes and some salt. The bottom of 
the trough of the cementing furnace being covered with 
this mixture, bars of steel are placed upon it; these are 
again covered with the carbonaceous compound, and so 
on until the trough is filled. The whole is closed, and 

the fire urged until all aoquires a tempeniare of aboiut 
lOO** Wedgwood; and this is steadily maintained for some 
days, the time varying; under different conditions, from 
four days to ten. In Uiese furnaces, 12 tons of bar iron 
may at each charge be converted into steel. Blistered 
steel is so called from the air-bubblea which cover its 
sxufaoe, which blisters appear to result from the forma- 
tion of carbonic oxide in the process of cementation. 

The operation of tilting is performed by beating the 
steel under tilt-hammers until it ia rendered of a very 
uniform structure. The tilt-hammers usually weigh 
about 200 cwt.— R. H.]

[Iron is converted into steel by a process called cemen- 
tation, which consists in placing iron bars in troughs of 
fire-brick, and covering them with layers of powder of 
wood charcoal, salt, and ashes. Dr. Ure is of opinion that 
the latter material is valueless. Care is taken that the 
Iron bars do not touch each other. The troughs, when 
filled, are covered up with loam, and subjected to the 
action of a furnace, the heat of which is uiged until it 
arrives at the proper temperature, and until the trough 
and its contents become one red-hot mass of matter. In 
this state it is maintained for a longer or shorter period, 
viz., from four to ten days, according to the nature of 
the steel desired ; if soft, the time is shorter. The heat 
produces the combination of the carbon with the iron 
and completes the conversion of a soft substance into 
one of the most brittle; it then undeigoes the process of 
hardening, by being plunged into cold water. 

Shear-steel is formed by uniting together several bars 
of blister-steel by means of a steel rod, and sprinkling 
over it, when heated, sand. After being again heated, it 
is drawn out into a bar by means of a tilt hammer, viz., 
a large hammer, which works by steam or water power. 
Repeated heatings not unfrequently transpose the con- 
verted steel into its original state of iron. 

Cast-steel is produced by melting blister-steel in cruci- 
bles, which is done after the manner of the brass-founder, 
in a common-air fiimaoe. The mouth of the crucible is 
covered ; the fuel used is coke. The metal, when melted, 
is poured into a mould, and acquires the name of " ingot 

Sheet-steel is produced by being rolled between re- 
volving cylinders of metal. 

Hand-drawn, means rods which have been produced by 
manual labour, in opposition to those formed by the tilt 
hammer. — ^W. C. A.]

[After the weaving of woollen doth, the small fibres

teazle heads, or wire brushes; as a oonsequenoe, these 
fibres present irregularities in their several 1f»^gthff, to 
reduce which to an equal or uniform sui&oe, shears were 
formerly employed. These have been superseded by the 
application of a spiral cutting cylinder, which, being 
fitted with the necefisary cutting edges, and revolving 
rapidly in contact with the cloth to be cut, and which 
is drawn on a ledge, speedily imparts to it the reqidate 
uniformity of surfiioe. — ^W. C. A.]

[The use of a ripping-saw is to separate the fibres of 
timber by eroding a portion of the fibre itself, to pre* 
serve an even way, and as an alternative to splitting. 
The crosscut-saw separates the fibre by a cut trans- 
versely, and effects more neatly and truly, and with less 
waste, what might be done with an axe; it cats logs 
into shorter lengths, as the pit-saw slits logs into boards. 

The tooth of a ripping-saw is more or less hooked, that 
of the pit-saw being shaped something like the upper 
mandible of a parrot; whilst the tooth of the croesomt- 
saw returns firom its point or i^^wx at an equal aagift on 


L. M. N. 0. 18 TO 20, & 26 TO 27 ; O. 9, & P. 8 TO 29. 


both adm of a line «t ri^t angles to the edge of the 
bladie; oooMquently the ripping-saw bites in the down- 
stroke onlj, iHiilst the crosscut-saw can cut both ways; 
and it does so when worked at both ends, as in cutting 
logs of large siies. 

TIm saw blade is commonly thicker at the serrated 
edge than at the back; both that it may not be imneces- 
sarily heaTy, and that it may not bind in the cut or the 
kerf (the ripping-saw makes a out, the crosscut-saw a 
kerf), though this latter object is more fiilly provided for 
by the setting of the saw; the setting being the bending 
outward of erery tooth alternately on one side and on 
tlie other, to such an extent ss the nature and condition 
<^the wood, in respect of woolliness and wetness, or their 
opposites, may render a wider or a narrower vpay necessary 
or sofflcient for the free psssage of the blade along the 
cut or throi^ the kerf. 

TsDon-Mtws are crosscut-saws mainly, and as their 
name imports, for cutting in the shoulders to tenons. 
Bat these are shallow cuts, and requiring to be made 
with neatness, the blade is made rigid by a back which is 
commonly of Inrass. Narrow-bladed saws, for cutting in 
eurred lines, are made thicker at the edge, and thinner 
at the back, and are not set.— W. H.]

Needles, in every stage of their mannfaefenre, from the 
wire of cast steel to the finished article. 

The exhibitors, being the drawers of card and other 
wire, a process which originated with their anoeston, a 
century ago, Mr. Huntsman, of AtterclifTe, idio fint 
refined carbonated iron, and which has been a sonice of 
great wealth, not only in the manufiicture of csst steel, 
but in the great variety of articles of outlery for which 
Sheffield is so celebrated, suggested to them thai it 
would be mutually advantageous if they could s n ocee d in 
drawing cast steel made from his carbonated iron. The 
suggestion was adopted, the attempt was made, and the 
cast steel and the wire made from it are now artieles 
of very extensive exportation.

veying away the dust occasioned in grincung needles on 
dry stones, and which would, if allowed to float in the 
air, be inhaled by the grinders, thereby fawising a com- 
plaint until lately very common, and hitherto inonraUe. 

[About twelve or fifteen years ago, several methods were 
tried to remedy this, but they did not effectually s uc ceed 
until a powerful ttm, as represented in the plan **"^^ 
on the boards at the end of the counter, was put up, oo 
which is shown a grinder at wotk, and the blaee of fire 
arising from the stone in the act of pointing, with the 
fan underneath, drawing the dust and particles of steel 
down the pipe, and leaving the atmosphere of the room 
perfectly clear and free from all iigurious effects; so that 
dry grinders have now the chance of living as loQg as 
other men; without this iq>paratus they cannot now be 
induced to woHl; it is therefore univenally adopted.]

able for wwggaim, goods Tans, locomotive engmes and ten- 
den, and pa a a e nger oarriagea. 

[Hm utility of the railway buffer oonaists in its 
tendency to counteract the effscta of the shock which 
ariaea from the stoppage of a railway train on the line. 

The momeDtum of the stopping body is dissipated 
by the application of an elastic medium, which opposes 
some resistance to the body which gives the blow. In 
the present instance, a steel spring is used, which is 
enclosed in a cylinder having a piston with a correspond- 
ing end fltaffbd and covered with leather works in it. 
The blow drives back this plunger against the spring, 
which to a certain extent resists, and thereby dissipates 
the efiecta of the collision. — ^W. C. A.]

powdered iron ore, and exposing them for days to the

[The rich dead gold-like colour given to brass work, 
and which has been introduced within the last thirty 
years, was discovered as the result of an accident. The 
work is first " scaled " (or roughly cleansed) by immersion 
in a weak solution of acid, it is then what is technically 
called "feassed," vis., the work passed through a stronger 
solution ; " deadening," follows, and this is effected by 
means also of acid, but of such a degree of strength 
that the action on the metal though recognisable is not 
of a violent kind; attention is necessary to this point, 
otherwise the work when finished will present a mottled 

appearance; it is now dried oat in saw-dust^ and is then 
passed through acid of ordinary strength and dipped into 
¥rater, of which there should always be an abundance at 
hand, imtil the acid be removed. The bright parts on 
the metal are produced by burnishing; gall is used in 
connection wiUi the steel burnishers to prevent their 
scratching, and the article to be burnished is from time 
to time plunged into ai^l and water. When finished 
from the ''burnisher," it is dried oat in boxwood saw- 
dust, and then lacquered. — ^W. C. A.]

[Fire irons are produced by foiging out of square bars

by means of "swages^** m MCi of mcmld, one portion of 
which is placed on the anvil, while the other is held by a 
" willow twists in the hand, and struck with a hammer 
until the form desired is arrived at; certain parts are then 
filed; the roimd portions are tonadin a latiie. The 
articles are caae-bardenad by laying them in an iron 
box, and covering than with animal charcoal, formed of 
burnt leather, hooft, fte. ; the whole is subjected to the 
operation of a fire or atawe imtil heated to a uniform red 
heat ; the box and ita contents are thereafter taken out and 
pi unged into water. Polishing succeeds, which is done by 
holding the article against a wheel, to the dmimference 
of which emery is attached by means of glue ; another 
wheel or " bob," with finer emery, gives a hi^ier degree 
of finish, and the final and brilliant polish is given by 
hand-friction with powdered iron-stone. The more highly 
wrought qualities, in which squares, angles, or cuttingB 
are introduced, are, alter filing, finished on a soft-metal 
wheel ; the twisted varieties are produced by the forger, 
who, when the metal is heated, twists it into a screw or 
spiral ; the pans of the shovels, &c., are fbrmed bj the 
stamp, and perforated by the press; the omamenti and 
studs are produced also by the stamp; they are aft«rwirds 
groimd and polished on a soft-metal wheel; and handles

[ThiB oolleotion of useful articles is manufactured of 
wrought iron, and is produced by the ordinary methods 
of hammering, swageing, &c. The three methods are 
here shown by which such utensils or fittings are pre- 
served, viz., tinning, galvanizing, and japanning. The 
first process is effected by pickling the iron to be tinned 
in a weak solution of oil of vitriol, which removes the 
scales; it is thereafter dipped in sal ammoniac and resin, 
and immersed in a bath of melted tin, which adheres to 
and forms a protective coating. The so-called galvanizing 
.process, viz., coating with zinc, is effected in a similar 
way; the iron is cleansed, and after the same course of 
proceeding, is immersed in a bath of zinc metal. Japan 
is applied with a brush, and the article thereafter is stored 
to dry.— W. C. A.]

[The light steel toy-trade, which includes buttons, cla**ps,

The articles are cut out from sheet steel; they are curved

press; the small eyes and fittings for attaching pins are 
soldered on; they are case-hardened, and tempered in oil, 
the reflecting surfaces being cut into ornamental arrange- 
ments by soft metal wheels with emery and oil. They 
are next fastened on a revolving table, and a hard bmah 
with emery upon it, is worked in a horizontal direction : 
a finer degree of polish is given with a softer brush and 
iron-stone powder; final brilliancy is given by putty 
powder and the palm of the hand. The cutting of these 
surfaces is a matter of taste, and depends much upon 
the art of the workman. — W. C. A.]

[Real stone buttons are formed, as their names indicate, 
from natural substances, cut and polished by the ordinary 
process of the lapidary. They are drilled with copper 
tools, revolving rapidly in a lathe fitted for the purpose, 
and the tool from time to time touched with emery and 
oil. Fancy glass buttons are made by ** pinching." The 
glass is heated. A pur of plycr-like instnmients, with the 
fonn of the button sunk in intaglio, is used to give the 
form, and the process consists in introducing the melted 
glass, and pressing the two parts together, when a button 
is produced. In some cases the eye is introduced into the 
interior of the glass at the time the button is made; in 
othei-s, a hole is pinched in the button, the eye introduced, 
and rivetted with a small collar on the surface, which odds 
to the ornamentiil appearance of the fj\stening. Other 
varieties of glass buttons are ma<le by taking sheets of 
coloured glass, the back of which has been ** quickened" 
(coated with lead), in the manner of silvering, cutting it 
into small squares, equal to the diameter of the button ; 
the comers are taken off* by clipj)ing. The l>ack of this 
variety is fonned of met^l, cut out in the manner of 
"blanks," to wliich the eye is soldered by hard solder; 
the glass is heated, the "quickening" melt«d, the metal 
back al^o being tinned and heated, the two pails ai-e placed 
together, and a junction is effected by the ordinary a<Ihe- 
sive properties of the solder. The button is finished by 
grinding the edges, surfaces, &c., and like cuttings are given 
by the ordinary cutting and polishing process. (ilaMs 
rosettes, for sarldling puriK>ses, are produced in the same 
way. The two colours lu-e given by cutting through the 
coating of coloured glass to tlie colowrlesH flint glasn,

Manda, with magaziDee or receptacles to hold matches, 
cigars, and tapers, are Dow produced in immense numbtira

Ths Industrial Exhibition of 1831 haa called into 
requisition, among others, the skilled labour of the me- 
dalliit die-einker. Aa a oonaequeDCs, medals of all kinds 
and prices am being produced. A medal die is thus 
formed: — Steel of a uniform texture and suitnble kind 
being selected, it ia forged, Boftened hy annealing, and 
the fikce and check for the ':o\iaT turned. The design 
approved of, the die-ainker proceeds to out away those 
parts of the greatest depth by meana of small chisels; the 
more minute detaila are taken out by gravera, chiael- 
«dged, and gauged steel tools fitted into wood handles, 
very short, and to fit the palm of the hand. Aa the 
work proceeds, proots ore taken in wax: when defective 
5n form, the cutting is corrected, and if deficient in 
relief, it is sunk deeper. It will, of course, be borne in 
mind that what will be relievo in the medal is intaglio 
in the dye. The inscription is introduced by means of 
■mall letter-punches. Than follows the hardening of the 
din, a stage of the biininexs tie most critical, aa a defect 
in the steel will at once b<< mode i^parent thereby, and 
-the labaur of months rendered useless in a few minutea. 
If the die endures this, it haa only another test, viz., the 
making of a "hub," or copy of the die in steel, and uaed 
for the correction of duplicate copies of the die. The 
danger in this case arises from the want of uniformity of 
lurdneas. If irregular, one portion of the original die 
mast suffer, and becomes valueless. 

Hedal-making or stamping is thus carried on : — The 
press oonsists of a large and close-threaded screw, to 
the top of which a large wheel ia attached horizontally. 
The bod of the preaa is fitted with acrews to secure the 
die in its place; when this is done, the collar which 
gives the tbickneas of the medal is fitted on, the die 
forming the reverse of the medal is attached to the screw; 
a bkok (a pieoe of metal cut out to form the medal) 
da then introduced. Motion is imparted to the wheel 
which opera(«e upon the screw, a blow is given, and if 
the impression is soil and shallow, a medal is produced; 
but if deep, repeated bli 

preanon up. 

Hliere bronze or silver is the material ii 

which the medal is to be produced, aa many aa 20 or 
•ven 30 blows are necessary. The medal is then taken 
out of the press, the edge tui-ned, and the operation is

[Id this manufacture, sheeta of iron, of tbe proper thiek- 
npss, are cut across by a pair of cutting edges whioh are 
set in mution by machinery; the breadth of theae atrip* 
is equivalent to the lengtli of the nails to be produced 
from them; tbe strip, for the convenience oF turning, 
is Faateued into a pair of grips attaclied to a wood shank, 
resting, when in use, upon a support immediately behind 
the workmen. The nail maolune consists, essentially, of 
a pur of cutting-chiseU or edges, whioh work perpen- 
dicularly, parallel to each other; a gauge to detennina 
tbe breadth of nail; a pair of grips, into which at tba 
time the wedge of iron fUls, and where it is firmly held, 
until the small horizontal hammer strikes it and produces 
tbe bead, when it is dropped into a boi beneath. Brada 
are not headed, but are simply cut out of each other, 
tbat is to say, a dcflciency in the parallelism of the 
cutting-edge produces the head, and prepares for tlia 
head of tbe next brad to be cut therefrom. Qlaziar** 
brads being simple wedge-like pieces of iron, without any 
head whatever, are produced by the simple operations 
of tliH chiaeU or cutlers. When tacks are blued, tbey 
arc done in quoutilies, by eiposiug them to beat in an 
oven or muffle, or upon an iron plate. Japanning is per-

[St«c1-pen making ma; bo brieflj described u fultowi: 
The iteel is procured from ShefSeld ; it is cut into stHjw, 
and the scalea removed by immersion in pickle, composed 
vf dilute aulphmic acid. It is passed through rollers, 
by which it is reduced to the neoeasary thickness; it is 
then in a oonditlon to be mnle into peas, and is for this 
inupuae paled into the bonds of a girl, who is seated at a 
{inHS, and who, by means of a bed and a punch corre- 
tponding, apeedily cuta out the blank. The next Btage is 
pierdng the hole which tsrmlnatfa the slit, and removing 
any supRrSuous steel likely to interfiiro with the eloatictty 
of the ppu; at thin Htage they arc oniunlwl in quoutlties in 
a luultte, aft<^r uliicb, by meaiiit of a auinll xtoiup, the 
liuiker'a muiiu ii< iuipriHHed upon tliciii. Up to tbui stage 
the future pen is a flnt piece of atoel ; it is then tnuiB- 
fnrwl to another class of wcirkers, who, by means of 
the prvaa, make it concave, if a nib, and form the barrel, 
if a barrel pen. Hardening is tlie noit process : to effect 
this a nimiber of pens are placed in a small iron box and 
intruducrd into n muffle; afler they become of a uuiform 
rl«p red, they ore plunged into oil; the oil adhering 
it removed by a^tatiun in a circular tin barrel. Tbo 
pniccBS of temjiering succeeds; and, finally, the whole 
mm placed in a rev^dving cylinder with sand, pounded cru- 
rible, or other cutting subatanco, wliich Anally brightens 
thciu to the natural colour of the material. The nib is 
^nind with great rapidity by n girl who picks it u|>, 
I'lacc* it into a pair of suitable plyers, and fiuisheii it 
with a, single loucb on a small emery wheel. Tlie ]>cu 
is now in o conilitiuu to receive the slit, and this is also 
il'iiM l>y mokua of a pivw; a chisut or wedge, with a flat 
p-ide, is fixed to the iKxloftbe prefu, the dceconding screw

points them; he next reverses the ends and effects the 
same result; they are then cut in two, flattened on the 
end, and eye-punched either by children or machinery; 
the roughness is removed, the eye smoothed by filing. 
They are then tempered in quantities, and polished by 
being gathered together and made to traverse a horizontal 
hearth or table, some abrasive substance hlbncat<^d with 
oil being introduced amongst them : scoiuing, winnowing, 
and sorting then follow. — W. C. A."|

vibrating; globe, ball, and cone key pins are pins with 
variously-shaped heads, going through the centre and

[In pin-making the wire is brass (a compound of eof^ier 
and zinc) : it is reduced by the ordinary prooeaa c^ with- 
drawing to the requisite thickness; in this prooeM ti m 
necessarily curved. To remove this it is re-wound, and 
pulled through between a number of pins arranged 
at the draw, or straightening bench; it is than cot 
into convenient lengths for removal, and finally redneed 
to just such a length as will make two pins. The pointing 
ii done upon steel mills (revolving wheels), the ciitnim- 
ference of which is cut with teeth, the one fine, the olber 
coarse. Thirty or forty lengths are picked np at onoe, 
and, as in needle-making, the cast of hand given by the 
workman makes them revolve, and the whole are pointed 
at once; the same operation is performed with the 
other end. The process of heading is next eflbcted ee 
follows: a number of the pointed wires, now out in two, 
are placed in the feeder of the machine; one dn^ in, 
is firmly seized, and, by means of a pair of dies, a portion 
of the metal is forced up into a snudl bulb, thus, ^=^ ; 
by a beautifully simple and automatic amngement» it is 
passed into another, when a small horizontal hemmer 
gives it a sharp tap, which completes the head. The white 
colour is produced by boiling in a solution of oreem of 
tartar and tin. They are then dried, and pawed into the 
hands of the wrappers-up. The preparation or maridng of 
the paper is peculiar, and is done by means of a moulded 
piece of wood, the moulds corresponding to thoee portiona 
which represent the small folds of paper through which 
the pins are passed, and thereby held. The pins are then 
taken to the paporers, who aix: each s ea te d in front of a

bench, to wfaidi is attached a horisontally-hinged piece of 
iron, the edge of which is notched with a corresponding 
number of marks to the number of pins to be stuck; the 
small catch which holds together the two parts of the iron 
ia releaaed, the paper introduced, and a pin inserted at 
everj mark: the paper is then released, and the task of 
examination follows, which is the work of a moment. The 
paper of pins is held so that the light strikes upon it; 
those defectiTe are immediately detected by the shade, 
taken out, and others substituted in their stead. An 
It edict of Henry VIII. held that " no one should 
sell any pins but such as were double-headed, or the 
hettds soldered fast on."— W. C. A.]

[Bronxe varies in its composition according to the taste 
of the artist as to the depth of colour or its hardnoKS ; a 
very excellent bronze is formcil by the a<ldition of J oz. 
of tin to 16 oz. of copper. 

The casting of a bronze statue may thus be described : 
the core is made up of brick-work and clay until a rude 
representation of the intended work is made; upon thia 
the sculptor models, in wax, of the thickness intended for 
the metal, all the details, such as the features, drapery, 
&c. ; when this is Qompleted, it is coated with loam of 
very thin consistency, then follow repeated solid coatings 
of clay, &c., until a shell of sufficient strength to bear 
the pressure of the melted metal is formed; the whole is 
then bound together, heat is applied, the wax is melted 
out, and a space thereby left for the introduction of 
the metal; suitable runners are made, and vents to 
allow the free escape of air. The metal is melted in 
reverberating furnaces, and, when in a proper condition, 
the plug is withdrawn, and the mould filled. After being 
allowed to remain until cool, it ia opened, the roughness 
cleansed off, and the statue ia completed. The peculiar 
tinge of the bronze is acquired by exposure to the 

A bronze of nearly the same tinge is given to brass by 
immersion in a mixture of spirits of salt and arsenic; the 
metal is to be heated previous to thia; the article is there- 
after brushed with black lead, and, after being again 
heated, is coated with a lacquer, composed of lac and 
spirits of wine, with a little yellow colouring matter; 
the shade of antiquity is thus imparted in a few minutes. 

The establishment of the exhibitors is one of the oldest 
in the trade in Birmingham ; it has been in existence 
upwards of 50 years; it was one of the earliest to recog- 
nise the importance of the union of art with manufactures. 
For this, the skill of Flaxman and Chantrey was called 
into requisition; artists, celebrated for their skill in archi- 
tectural enrichment, were also employed in the modelling 
of balustrades, candelabrum, tripods, &c. — W. C. A.]

Electroplated articles on hard w^hite metal. Urns,

articles are made by a process, without seams or soldering, 
so as to diminish labour and cost; particularly that of 
embossing and chasing. 

The articles are cast in metal moulds, in a heated 
state ; a stream of water is made to play upon the 
moulds, when filled with hot metal, which causes the 
mould to contract, and thus produce a greater degree of 
sharpness in the fine parts of the casting; the metal used 
expands in cooling.

[Bell and candlestick founding and making are under- 
stood, in the Birmingham trade, to go together. The 
operation of casting may be similar, but the composition 
of the two metals is exceedingly different, the one being 
hard, the other pliable and ductile. Bell-metal, though 
composed of two of the softest of metals, viz., copper and 
tin, when united in the proportion of four to one, forms a 
mixture easily broken and capable of producing sound. 
Small bells are cast in sand, those of a laige size are pro- 
duced in loam. 

Candlesticks are cast in sand, and made hollow by 
the introduction into the mould of what is called "a 
core," viz., a piece of sand corresponding in size to the 
hollow of the pillar. Upon his skill in making this, in 
such a manner as to produce uniform thickness of metal 
throughout, depends the success of the workman ; the 
metal must also be of a proper temperature, or the casting 
is rendered useless by the presence of flaws. Candlestick 
are finished by being turned, and polished by friction 
when in a state of motion in the lathe; the bottoms, when 
round, are also turned; when square, they are filed and 
polished. The composition of the metal, in this case, is 
copper and zinc, in the proportion of 16 ounces of the 
former to 8 ounces of the latter. 

Lockhead's patent glass is produced by a roller having, 
on its circumference, projections corresponding to the 
apertures intended, which is made to traverse the surface 
of the glass ; when in a molten state, an indentation is 
made for every projection, and the whole is finished by 
grinding, which removes the extra glass and relieves the 
apertures. It is useful for purposes of ventilation. —

Specimens, showing the process of manufincturc of rolled

[Rolled metal (brass) is prodooed by melting the metal 
to be rolled in clay crucibles; when soffioiently melted, 
mixed, and fluxed, it is poured into iron Ingots, &c., 
which have been previously smeared with oil. After this, 
the " strip" is passed into the hands of the roller, who 
proceeds to what is technically called "break it down;^ 
then follows the process of reduction. The huge iron 
rollers used in the operation are fitted with serewa or 
appliances for bringing their surfiices in cIomt oontaot. 
The metal is annealed in muffles, scaled, and piekled 
(cleaned and washed in an acid solution), and in oettain 
cases where brightness is necessary, it is finidied by 
being passed through bright-rolls. — ^W. C. A.]

Brass solder. 

[The metal of which brass wire is formed is cast in 
strips and rolled to the required thickness; it is then 
" slit " into square rods of metal by the operatkm of 
cylindrical rollers; the laiger sixes of wire have conMtB 
taken off by being passed through a pair of rolls ; the 
smaller sizes are at once passed through steel draw- 

Brass or other tubes are formed from rolled metal, 
which is cut to the required breadth by means of re- 
volving discs ; in the laige sizes of tubes, the metal is 
partially curved in its leng^ by means of a pair of 
rolls ; when in this condition, it is pswed through a fltosl 
hole or a die, a plug being held in such a pootion as 
allows the metal to pass between it and the interior of 
the hole. Oil is used to lubricate the metal; the motion 
is communicated by power, the drawing apparatos being 
a pair of huge nippers, which holds the brass, and is 
attached to a chain which revolves around a windlaM or 
cylinder. The tube, in its unsoldered state, is amiealod, 
bound around at intervals of a few inches with iron 
wire, and solder and borax applied along the seam. The 
operation of soldering is completed by passing the tube 
through an air stove heated with " ookes^' or " breeaaB,** 
which melts the solder and unites the two edges of the 
metal, and forms a perfect tube; it is then inunened in a 
solution of sulphuric acid to remove the scaly deposit on 
its surface, the wire and extra solder having been pra- 
viously removed; it is then drawn through a "ftniabfay 
hole plate," when the tube is completed. 

Mandril drawn tubes, as the name indioates, are dmfm 
upon a very accurately turned steel mandril ; by thSa 
means, the internal diameter is rendered amooth; the 
tube formed by this process is well fitted fbr telsMopea, 
syringes, small pump-cylinders, &c. 

Brass solder is composed of almost eqoal qoantitias of 
copper and zinc; its properties should be that of melting 
at such a temperature as will allow the sriieKo to be 
soldered to be sufficiently heated, but yet sons dsgraes 
from melting point. Solder is always used in oonnseiion 
with borax, the cleansing properties of which ^ipssrs to 
fiaoilitate the fusion of the metal. — W. C. A.]

[In these specimens, the oxidated or scaly appearance 
of the metal, when undergoing the process of manufacture, 
will readily be detected; the parts at which the soldering 
has been also made, are shown by the brightness of the 
•earn. The glassy appearance at this part, when un- 
cleansed, arises frx>m the use of the borax, which is em- 
ployed to protect that portion of the br^uu to be soldered, 
from becoming dirty ; it also acts as a flux, feu^tatlng 
the running of the solder. Inmiersioh in weak nitric 
acid effectually remores the scales, after which various 
strengths of the same acid are used until the articles are 
entirely cleansed; they are finally dried out in box saw- 
doat, and burnished. — W. C. A.]

[The articles here exhibited illustrate the heavy steel

axe UAed by the backwoodsman, of the hoe URe<l in the 
agriculture of the tropics, the pick used by the Caffirs of 
the Cape, and the harp<»oTi of the whalo-fiKher, gives em- 

ployment to many artizans in its vicinity. In order to 
convey a general idea of the process by which these 
articles are " got up," the manufacture of an ordinary 
axe may be selected. A piece of iron is taken, and 
after being heated, is doubled over a piece of steel cor- 
responding in form to the future eye which is to hold 
the shank; it is not then welded together. A small 
piece of steel which is intended to form the future cutting 
edge, is heated along with the iron back to a welding 
heat, and is passed under a tilt-hammer (that is, a large 
hamiuer driven by steam or water), which speedily 
flattens it out : it is then exposed to another heat, and 
the eye is completed with the small hammer. The 
superfluous iron or steel is removed at the edge by a 
pair of large scissors. The process of hardening and 
tempering follow; the grinding is performed on stones, 
which cuts away the iron and discloses the steel edge. 
The "glazing" on emery "bobs" or wheels succeeds, and 
the polishing is effected by means of oil and emery on a 
similai* tool. Considerable improvement in appearance 
is imparted by the use of a blue vamish which is applied 
to the axe, and drying in a small stove. "Toy" is a 
technical term applied to an anvil, a hammer, and various 
incongruous objects which are comprised under the 
"heavy steel trade," readily imderstood by the initiated.

[The application of enamel for the protection of water- 
cisterns, j)ipes, &c., from oxidation, and for the lining of 
cooking utensils, is of comparatively recent date. The 
various materials of which the coating is composed (silex 
being the principal) are reduced to a fluid state: the 
article to be coated is dipped in the mass; a portion of 
the fluid adheres; it is then subjected to the heat of a 
muffle, and the whole becomes vitrified or reduced into 
a glassy covering, affording an excellent defence against 
oxidation, and a substitute for the protectic)n affordefl by 
tinning. — W. C. A.]

[Pearl-button making is thus practised : The blanks are

tube, the edge of which is toothed as a saw; after which 
they are flatted, or reduced in thickness, by splitting, which 
is aided by the laminar structure of the shell. At this 
stage, being held in a spring chuck, they are finished on 
both sides by means of a small tool : the drilling is effected 
by the revolution of a sharp steel instrument, which aottt 
with great rapidity. Ornamental cuttings are produced 
by means of small revolving cutters, and the final brilliant 
polish is given by the friction of rotten-stone and soft- 
soap, upon a revolving bench. — ^W. C. A.]

[Saws are formed from plates of sheot steel, and are 
toothed not by hand but by means of a press and tools. 
Circular saws have the advantage of being divided in their 
teeth very accurately by means of a division plate; this 
prevents irregularity of size, and imparts smoothness and 
uniformity of action. The larger sizes of circular saws 
are made in segments, and connected together by means 

of dovetails. All saws are hanieniMl and tempered in oil; 
their irregularities are removed by hammering on blocks, 
and they are equalized by grindhig. The several forms 
of teeth do not, as the casual obeerver may imagine, de- 
pend upon taste, but are those best fitted for cutting 
through the particular section, quality, or hardness of the 
material to be cut. The " set " of the saw consists in 
inclining the teeth at the particular angle known to be 
the best to fiEunlitate the exit of the saw-dust, and thereby 
allow the saw to operate more tnelj. Iron bars, shaft- 
ings, &c., are cut to length by a steel circular saw, in ita 
soft state, the iron to be out being presented to the saw 
red hot; the saw rotates at a prodigious rate, and is kept 
in cutting condition, or cool, by its lower edge being im- 
mersed in water. A bar, two inches in diameter, is cut 
through in a few seconds. — W. C. A.]

[In the articles here exhibited is introduced a method 
of casting together man; of the parts, such ns the head 
and foot rails, the block or dovo-tails on to the comsr 
of the posts, and the correspondiiig portion which fits 
:m to the njif;Ie-iron, an<l forms the ades, head, nnd foot 
if the bed. This mothoil of costing together consists in 
lajing the various pieces of iron rodding from which the 
rails are to be formed, into caxt-iron nioiilds, ornamental 
ntaglio impresaioiui or cavitiea being lelt immediately 
under; when the mould is closed, n connection is mods 
with these eitemall; by means of on aperture; the melted 
metal is poured in, and a Jimctinn is effedad. The pro- 
duction of taper tube pillnn in eSectoil by passing the 
" turned up" and nolderod tube through a pair of rolls, 
whose external diameters are tntvensed b; a groove pro- 
portioned to the taper to be produced ; the tube inter- 
nally is supporte<l by a mandril.— -W, C. A.]

[These tnper tubes differ from all otliom in the manner 
in which they are produced, vii. by being drawn at an 
ordinary draw bench, tliiii peculiarity arising from the 
uec of aduciile metal tool thnxigii which tlie soldered case, 
placed upon tlio mandril (whether reeded, flutiid, octagon. 
&c.), is drawn. Twisted or Bpitnl tubes can bo produced 
by Uie same method. This niethud was first aihipted by 
Mr. John Wanl, one of the workmen in connection with 
the works.— W. C. A.]

[Bthsb cnatinga are prodaced in smd by meana of

Work involving no email amount of skiU and knonledge; 
the simpler Idnda an made b; the ordinary workmen ; 
but in cases where figures, foliage, or animala are intro- 
duced, the eye and the hand of the artiat become necee- 
baiy. The object is firvt designed, then modelled in WKx; 
ft cast in lend is formed, it lb then cast in brasa and 
chased : this forma the pattern, or model, for the caster. 

Ordinary globular or simple fonua are rotdily copied ; 
but when the human figure, animnla, or foliage is iutro- 
dooed, the difSoulty is increased. The castings can only 
be effected by means of {Use coreing, viz., hanging 
jiieCfiB of Band, which arc made up and lifted out in solid 
portiODs before the mode! can be removed, and which 
thereafterare Bgun introduced. An ordinary plaster cast,

introduced, the moulds closed having been previously
